2014-15 Season

Our poetrybridge community is known for our attentive and appreciative listening and our welcoming of new readers especially first time readers. We welcome all poets and storytellers but especially open our arms and ears to those who either live, work or play in West Seattle.

February 25 Readings

The February 25th reading marks five year of readings at C&P. The dynamic pairing of Kerry Cox and Tito Titus as featured readers, both of whom have read many times at poetrybridge, is a real treat as we celebrate our five year anniversary. Please see their bios.  SEE BIOS  

Large special comparative posters will be available at the February reading measuring 18 x 24. Suggested donation is $10 to help defray the expense of maintaining this website.

We also look forward to hearing our often amazing COMMUNITY MIC READERS who regularly delight and illuminate.

Poetry Pole

The poetrypole is currently bare given the high winds and rain that hammered it during the great winter of 2014. Here it is bristling with poems in its more recent heyday.

The pole awaits all of your musings and creations. Please publish.

You can download the above promotional poster which is linked to a JPG file by right clicking it and downloading the linked file. Please distribute using social media or print and post in your favorite hangout.
