POG means P O e t r y G r o u p
Join us at our upcoming event: Ofelia Zepeda & Maryrose Larkin, our first set of featured poets for the Fall reading series! Description and details here.
Collectively, the POG Directors, along with our presenting artists, and our audiences, make a Group, or a Think Tank about poetry & poetics that is always developing, always making a difference in our public lives.
What defines and distinguishes us is that we do not take for granted what poetry is and how it should look or sound. We welcome diversity in the arts in all the ways it comes, including radical aesthetic experimentation.
Poetry in our minds is a wide-ranging category – think of Aristotle's "Poetics" which is about all the arts of that philosopher's time. POG has presented, in addition to poets: musicians, performance artists, puppeteers, visual artists, dancers, and groups/individuals who think about our contemporary moment through their artistic practices.
