A gentle reminder for any in-person events: as our gatherings are at times under the open sky, they remain dependent on weather, so dress appropriately! Likewise, please abide by any and all COVID public health precautions requested by our individual venues. ALL events are subject to cancellation due to COVID-related escalations/changes in local government policy. Any revisions to event status will be posted on the River City Poets Facebook page, so please check in there before heading out the door!
