More About Poets Potpourri

Our membership is eclectic ranging from novice to published poets.

Throughout the year we participate in a variety of community events with the goal of raising awareness of our Society.

In 2006 we published an anthology, Poetic Spirits of The Valley, to mark the 25th anniversary of our Society. We have a second anthology published in spring, 2009. It includes poetry written by our members as well as poems written by winners of our first (2008) poetry contest, River of Words.

Poetry Anthology – River of Words

“I am thrilled to introduce this anthology on behalf of the Poets Potpourri Society. Our group has been active in the community for over 27 years. We have many talented poets and artists in the group, and we have designed a very unique book to give our readers a view of the beauty of our land and provide different flavors of live and thought from our poets…”

Rita Carrington

River of Words anthology was released in 2009 in a celebration in which various of our poets shared with the community their newest work.

This anthology is available for purchase by visiting us on reading nights or by contacting Karen Belix-Moore by email. The price is $20 $15 dollars, of which $2 is donated to the Abbotsford Food Bank.
