Red Wheelbarrow Writers Group Reading, This Uncommon Solitude

Join us in the Virtual Readings Gallery for a group reading by this celebrated local writing group.


This Uncommon Solitude captures the myriad and diverse experiences during these times of quarantine and the COVID-19 pandemic. We reach out to connect but we can’t physically touch. We are shaken by news of widespread suffering and death caused by a novel virus that inexorably spirals out of control. We feel powerless and isolated. Ongoing catastrophes of racism and environmental decline trouble our hearts. For many of us, poetry has helped connect us as we share experiences and insights, express our grief and sadness, fears and pain, gratitude and hope. In joining together, we feel our way forward as best we can toward making sense of our transformed world.

Red Wheelbarrow Writers is a non-profit, loose affiliation of working writers who produce independently, and who join together to support, encourage, and sustain one another. We welcome all writers to our monthly (virtual) Happy Hour to drink wine, share excerpts of works- in-progress, exchange news and views.
