Why are we here?
Why are we here?

Our mission is to promote the appreciation of poetry and prose in our community and to provide an environment for skill building and enjoyment of language arts by people of all ages.

We envision the St. George area as a Mecca for writers and intend to do what we can to make that a living reality.

A chapter of the Utah State Poetry Society, Redrock Writers sponsors five major activities open to community participation:

1)   Creative Writing Seminar, held during March of each year in St. George, Utah

2)   Chaparral Poetry Forum, a national adult poetry competition charging entry fees for submissions

3)   Student Chaparral Poetry Contest, free to enter but limited to grade 1-12 students residing in Utah’s Washington County

4)   Poetry Blogsite

5)   Evening poetry critique meetings held the third Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM.  Contact 435-275-2263.

We would like to thank Utah State Poetry Society and the St. George Arts Commission for their support. Also made possible through RAP Tax funding.

Redrock Writers depends on the voluntary efforts of Southern Utah writers who participate in our collective learning, write and read their poetry, and help organize and lead our regular activities. We deeply appreciate the contributions of members of UTSPS Dixie Chapter, the Utah State Poetry Society, the National Federation of State Poetry Societies, the Heritage Writers Guild and The League of Utah Writers. We also express appreciation to outstanding poets from across America who participate in blind judging our yearly contest.
