Rhyme N Chatt Interactive Poetry Organization (RNC) is a historic institution in Chattanooga, TN. First organized in 1999, it was created to “provide a safe place where poetry is shared and discussed and people are valued.”

RNC encourages creativity without judgement and PG-13 rated poetry that challenges poets to express themselves without offensive language. It doesn’t discriminate based on color, race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, etc.

RNC prides itself on being “the first place” that many have ever shared their poetry aloud, because we provide such a safe atmosphere.
