Cedar Bark Poets

The “Cedar Bark Poets” group meets every second Saturday, 6-8pm in The Grove or nearby Newton Recreation Center depending on the weather. We are a small, 6-10 person group interested in exploring community voice through spoken word. Participants are welcome to share original poetry, read a favourite poem, or just come to listen.
