The Powow River Poets are a gathering of accomplished New England poets, centered in Newburyport, Ma., but including members from as far as the Boston area and New Hampshire. Members are widely published in journals, anthologies, and their own collections. and have won numerous awards for both original poetry and translations. The thrust of the group is toward formal prosody, and it is best known in that regard, but while many members employ rhyme, meter, and form, others write primarily or exclusively in free verse.
In addition to a monthly members workshop, the group participates in readings and cultural events throughout the area; and hosts a nationally recognized bimonthly poetry reading series which features both prominent guest poets and Powow members. Readings normally take place on the second Saturday of alternate months at 3:00 p.m., at Newburyport Public Library, 94 State Street, in Newburyport.
