Even though we are currently in the middle of a pandemic, that does not mean that poetry doesn't stop being written. There are some virtual opportunities for sharing poetry (some right here at NVC), and when we are able to gather again, venues like the Napa Main Library will be bringing back their poetry slams and the literary salons of Napa will reopen.
