About Us

Originally launched in the Spring of 2017, River City Poetry is the brainchild of April PametickyRCP intends to celebrate the creative culture and zeitgeist of Wichita, Kansas–while providing a platform to share exceptional work from both regional and national poets.

Unexpected growth and support from the community has meant an expansion of the editorial board to include Roy Beckemeyer, whose insightful chapbook reviews serve the overall mission of RCP, and whose advice has proved instrumental.

Others have partnered with RCP in advisory capacities or in financial support.  The following list is a small measure of our appreciation:

Skyler Lovelace: graphic design

Harvester Arts: Executive Board

Wichita Arts Council

Emily Christensen: all things great and small

Kansas Authors Club: District 5
