Monthly Poetry and Featured Poets

First Tuesdays Each and Every Month!

Nexus Poets meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.

We have exciting news!

After a year and a half of meeting solely online, we’ve resumed in-person meetings!


We’re now holding hybrid meetings, so you can attend in person OR online!

If you’d like to join us online, email us at to receive the monthly link.

If you’re able to join us in person, we’re meeting each month at the UU Fellowship at 308 Meadows Street in New Bern, NC.

(Note: In the event of a major holiday, we may move to the second Tuesday. See our Facebook page for updates.)

Our monthly event begins with a reading from our featured poet, and is followed by an open mic, where we welcome poets who would like to read one original poem. Read our open-mic guidelines here.

There is no charge for our event.

All who would like to contribute to “the hat” to help us pay for our expenses may do so in person, or you may donate online (donate button at the bottom of the screen). We appreciate your support!
