To honor the memory of Nationally known Pawtucket Poet Galway Kinnell, past winners of the Galway Kinnell Poetry Contest are planning a weekend of events including a social gathering of poets on Friday evening Sept 14, for Pints and Poems at a local brewery, which will be open to non poets to come share a favorite poem by Galway Kinnell or other RI poet as well as a pint or two.

Saturday will be filled with workshops including one on the Poetry of Kinnell and one in collaboration with Endless Beautiful and a Hip Hop workshop, Haiku and Nature, etc. This will be followed by an open mic.

Sunday will be an afternoon reading featuring several RI poets at Stillwater Books. Registration information is available on the website and Facebook page.
