Riverwood Poetry Series

Second Thursdays

Riverwood Poetry Series is a non-profit group in its 11th year of offering free poetry events in the Hartford area. On the second Thursday of each month our series explores a different social justice theme with an open mic session, a featured reading and a conversation with the poet. 

Doors open at 7:00 PM for light refreshments and conversation. Poetry begins at 7:15 PM. Open mic precedes the featured poet. Come and read anything! 

This event is free of charge; donations gratefully accepted.
