Haverhill River Bards Poetry
November 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Haverhill’s River Bards are a group of local poets with a passion for shining a light on poetry, prose, spoken word, and other literary arts. Twice a year the Bards present a once a month poetry series in collaboration with Creative Haverhill. This program is usually held at HC Media’s downtown location, but due to the pandemic we’ve decided to host our fall season virtually, via zoom. This series will be on Friday evenings from September through November, and will feature readings by fantastic published poets, followed by open mic readings. Friday, November 6th will feature Bob Whelan. Whelan is a poet, playwright, and essayist who lives in Rockport, MA. He has been published in several anthologies and journals and is a regular at many open mics in Boston and on the North Shore. He organizes and presents the annual Rockport Poetry Festival, and hosts the monthly Rockport Poetry Open Mic.
