Rock Canyon Poets was co-founded by Bonnie Shiffler-Olsen and Trish Hopkinson in 2015 and was established to develop camaraderie among Utah Valley poets, provide consistent workshopping and reading opportunities, and promote the disciplined study of writing poetry as a serious art form. The group sponsors poetry readings and an open mic on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at Pioneer Book in historic downtown Provo. Membership is by invitation or portfolio submission only.
Pioneer Book is Utah County’s largest used and rare bookshop, carrying titles in a broad range of fields.
