Who We Are

--a federally-recognized non-profit corporation--is a collective of poets, literary critics, and practitioners of other art forms who have joined together in Tucson to offer public programming, and other related events, which will promote active appreciation of and engagement with avant-garde artistic work in a variety of media, especially poetry and multi-disciplinary art.  Cross-over programming has been central to POG's mission from the beginning . . .
