Founded in 2008, The Grey Court Poets is a popular Methuen-based poetry writers group that seeks to enhance our growing cultural community by providing an outlet for creative people living in and around the Merrimack Valley. The mission of the Grey Court Poets is to provide a forum where people can learn about poetry, have their writing constructively critiqued, work on poetry reading skills, and share and provide resources such as websites, books, magazines, and other poetry-related material. The Grey Court Poets also strive to be a major part of the local cultural community by sponsoring and taking part in public readings, workshops, and literary festivals. Regular meetings are held via Zoom on the first Monday of every month at 7 p.m. Prior to Covid-19 meetings were held in at the Nevins Memorial Library 305 Broadway, Methuen, MA. and may resume there in the future. Our poetry readings and events have been held at venues such as Café Azteca, El Taller, The Spicket River Falls, Poets Wall on the Methuen Rail Trail, Mann Orchards, the Nevins Library, The Stevens Library, and the Methuen Music Hall. Membership is open to poets of all levels and styles. Poetry fans who do not write but are eager to learn about poetry and would like to be kept informed of literary happenings are invited to join as well. You need not be a Methuen or Merrimack Valley resident to join the Grey Court Poets. Just provide us with an email address for meeting updates and you’re in!
