Mesquite Western Poetry is made up of a group of poets from various parts of Nevada and Utah who hold monthly meetings in Mesquite from October thru February with the intent of giving a forum for local poets to perform.  They organize the Mesquite Western Roundup each February for that performance.  That performance is sponsored by the Mesquite Arts Council and  held in the Mesquite Community Theater.  The group welcomes new poets who want to learn and perform.
