Three NRH Area Poets Featured Online

Talented Writers’ Verse Highlighted on 

Three of North Richland Hills’ Poets Corner writers are being featured online as part of a North Richland Hills Parks and Recreation creative initiative intended to encourage and promote the art of prose, poetry and self-expression.  The NRH Poets Corner project began in 2015, and has enjoyed a successful partnership with Roots Coffeehouse since that time, with regular quarterly readings being held at the popular and cozy venue. Justin Bent, Joseph Anzaldua and MiShon Landry will have their poems posted online at until June, 2020, so that readers can access and enjoy their work. All three authors write from deeply personal spaces, encouraging others to explore our different perspectives, our striking similarities and the personal struggles and triumphs that unite us all.

About the NRH Poets Corner:
Once readings resume, poems can be on any subject* and in any style and poets must perform work that they have created. No performance can last longer than 3 minutes, and the readings are limited to 18 authors. The event will operate on a "first come, first served" basis at sign in. All you need to do is show up, sign up and be heard!
The NRH Poet's Corner is an Arts Initiative of the North Richland Hills Parks and Recreation Department and is intended to encourage and promote the art of prose, poetry and self-expression. Writers of all ages and abilities are invited to participate.
* Views expressed in the Poetry readings remain those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the City of North Richland Hills, its employees or elected officials.
