2016-17 Readings

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.

October 26 Reading

Our third reading of the 2016-17 poetry readings features Brandon Pitts, whom I heard read for the first time last spring at community mic and was so taken with his reading that I asked him to be a featured reader this year.

I also welcome back Michael Hickey, who always brings along a passel of his more enthusiastic students, some of whom I hope will also read their own works at community mic.

Plus I am eager to see who may have responded to my proposal to bring a voice to WHATS NEXT?

Please SEE BIOS for more information.

As is our custom, after the featured readers, we will take a short break before we start COMMUNITY MIC, which for me, is often a highlight of a robust evening of the spoken word.

I am looking forward to seeing you and hopefully hearing many of you read at community mic.
