Our monthly poetry reading series “First Wednesdays” is held at 7:00 PM at the Williams Center for the Arts, One Williams Plaza in Rutherford. “First Wednesdays” is a free program featuring noted poets and open readings from the floor. Join us!
On the third or fourth Friday of most months, we are at the GainVille Cafe, 17 Ames Street in Rutherford at 7:00 PM. There is usually a music feature, and always a poetry feature, followed by the Bring Your A Game open mic with generous reading times. Be there!
The Red Wheelbarrow Poets have a poetry workshop which meets at the Rutherford NJ Municipal Building, on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month. The workshop meets from 7 PM to 9 PM at the Rutherford NJ Municipal Building located at 176 Park Ave., in Rutherford, NJ. The meeting room is the “Blue” room located on the second floor.
Please bring 10 to 12 copies of the poem(s) you wish to be workshopped.
What we do: we pass the poems out, everyone reads their poem(s), and then we discuss them. Jim Klein is our teacher/workshop moderator.
No dues or rules, formal memberships, etc.. It’s peer-to-peer, fun, free, and you will learn a great deal about what you write and how to improve it. We hope to see you at a workshop.
