NRH Poet's Corner

Calling All Poets!

The NRH Poet's Corner Project encourages authors to share their work on our website and in regular, informal gatherings. We invite you to join us and read your poetry and prose to an appreciative audience of like-minded lovers of the spoken and written word.

Live and In-Person Readings Resume in July, 2021!
After a long postponement due to Coronavirus safety protocols, the NRH Poet's Corner is pleased to announce that our first live and in-person reading of 2021 will take place at the North Richland Hills Library on Saturday, July 24 at 2 p.m. The Library is located at 9015 Grand Avenue, NRH, 76180.

How NRH Poet's Corner Readings Work
  • Simply show up and sign in. You'll be called to take your place at the microphone.
  • Poems can be on any subject* and in any style.

  • During the first round, authors must perform work that they have written. (Favorite poems by other authors may be read in subsequent rounds).

  • No performance can last longer than 3 minutes each round.

  • Readings are limited to 18 authors. 

  • The event will operate on a "first come, first served" basis at sign in and will work in a "round robin" format.

  • All you need to do is show up, sign up and be heard!

This is a family-friendly and non-partisan event that is open to everyone who is interested in sharing their poetry and prose. Children and young people may be present. Please make sure the material in your reading is inclusive and suitable for all ages.

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.
