Pictured above, Frank Parker, Linh Dinh, Tenney Nathanson, and Charles Alexander, just a few of the many who have helped POG grow into Tucson's finest presenter of new and avant poetry & poetics. All four of these, as well as dozens more, have presented for POG, and Frank, Tenney, & Charles have also been mainstays of POG's creators and directors in its history. POG began in 1996 as a project instigated by Nathanson and Alexander, and including (as it still does) members of Tucson's wide poetry community as members of our directors. In the coming year, 2012-13, POG will present an initial POG & Friends reading on September 15, and events just about every month thereafter, through April 2013. Most events take place at The Drawing Studio, 33 S. 6th Ave in downtown Tucson, but selected events occur in various locations, so stay tuned to our calendars, facebook page, email missives, and this site, for more information.
