Would you like to try River Writing?

Two Hours @ the Table is great way to write in community. Get your feet wet or refresh your writing practice! Writing is for everyone and we'd love to welcome you to the table. If the $40 tuition presents a barrier to your participation, please request sliding scale. If you'd like to dive in a bit deeper, consider joining a multi-week series. Click here to see our current schedule.

If you'd like to spend and evening with folks gathering around the fire of poetry, sign up below for our next Queer Poetry Night at Laziz Kitchen, live in Salt Lake City, Utah. Join us on Zoom from wherever you are for the next quarterly Confluence, an hour of intimate listening as a dozen River Writers read from their notebooks. Both events are free.

Praise Poetry Reading on Antelope Island!

02-19-2022 3:00 pm -5:00 pm
Free with Registration
Praise Poetry Reading on Antelope Island!

The poem irreplaceable is a prayer for restoration, destined to become at least 1700 lines long to reflect the 1700 square mile size (minimum) of a robustly healthy Great Salt Lake. The poem is growing and already contains a myriad of perspectives and over a hundred voices. The work will be read aloud in its entirety by a community chorus outside the Antelope Island visitor center on Saturday, February 19th, 3-5pm.
Everyone is welcome! Though the reading is free, state park fee ($17 per vehicle) for access to Antelope Island will still apply.
