Welcome

…to the River City Poets’ home page! Here you’ll find listings of our events, workshops, and  other programming updates, as well as more info about us & our community. Feel free to look around!

We’re kicking things off early in December with an anthology (you remember our first anthology, Lingering in the Margins) reading & discussion at Village Exxon, the popular poetry event space & service station (yes, you heard that right) on December 1. We’ll even have books for sale from our authors, so you can get a jump on your holiday shopping. 😉

Apart from that, it’s business as usual this month, with regular open mics, workshop, and critiques woven in between the holidays. We hope you can take a break from the bustle to be inspired with us some time before the end of the year! If you attend just one event in December, though, we recommend you join us at Firehouse on the 3rd for a special showcase featuring members of our critique circle.

Also, if you haven’t checked it out yet, take a peek at our YouTube channel! We’ve finally joined the video bandwagon and are now showcasing clips (shot by generous community member J. Thomas Brown) from our Lingering in the Margins field trip to Writer House earlier this fall.
