About

Our monthly poetry reading series The Williams Readings hosted by The Gang of Five (Claudia Serea, John Barrale, Arthur Russell, Anton Yakovlev, and Don Zirilli) is held on the first Wednesdays at 7:00 PM at the Williams Center for the Arts, One Williams Plaza in Rutherford. The Williams Readings  feature noted poets and an open mic. Join us!

On the third or fourth Friday of every other month, poet Mark Fogarty hosts us at the GainVille Cafe, 17 Ames Street in Rutherford at 7:00 PM. There is a music feature, and always a poetry feature, followed by the Bring Your A Game open mic with generous reading times. Don’t miss it!

The Red Wheelbarrow Poets host a poetry workshop, moderated by Jim Klein, which meets every Tuesday from 7 PM to 9 PM in the room located on the first floor of the Williams Center. Please bring at least 15 copies of your poems for review. The Williams Center is located at One Williams Plaza in Rutherford, NJ.

What we do: we pass the poems out, everyone reads their poem(s), and then we discuss them. Jim Klein is our teacher/workshop moderator. No rules, or formal memberships. It’s peer-to-peer, fun, and you will learn a great deal about how to improve your writing. We hope to see you at a workshop or at any of our events.

Please note: We must now pay $100 per month rent for the use the Williams Center for our readings. This is in addition to the $100 per month rent the Red Wheelbarrow workshop must pay for the use of their space in the Williams Center. 

We need your help to survive and continue to hold our monthly readings. We will be asking for donations. A $5 per person donation is suggested. If we all contribute, we can pay the rent!
