Rochester Writers Night

A monthly gathering and live reading for writers in Rochester and the surrounding community. While we don’t restrict readings to poetry, most of our members do usually read poetry.
The fourth Thursday of every month at 6:00 PM on Zoom




NEPC is a poets’ association founded in 1915 by Amy Lowell, Robert Frost, and Conrad Aiken to foster the art of poetic expression. We run the oldest poetry reading series in the country. We offer an ongoing writing workshop open to all members. We sponsor awards and contests to encourage and recognize poetic achievement. And we look for new creative ways to foster understanding and love of poetry.
