HOW POETS CORNER READINGS WORK

The NRH Poet's Corner Project encourages authors to share their work at 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.

  • 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.

 HOLOCAUST

A WORK BY BARACK THE COMPOSER

Author, performer, musician and poet, Barack the Composer has been featured at several Poets Corner readings, immediately capturing attention with his stentorian baritone, concise phrasing and riveting  delivery. His powerful messages for social justice, peace and understanding provide a voice for those who may not always be heard and food for thought for those who hear his words.
