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.

Thanksgiving Eve - November Reading

The November 26 reading, on the Night Before Thanksgiving, will feature Cheryl Latif and Tim Newcomb. Please see their bios.  SEE BIOS  

Plus our AMAZING CAST of OPEN MIC READERS who regularly delight and illuminate us.

Poetry Pole

The July and August Poetry Pole Readings were held outside around the poetry pole which is now covered with new poems ‘published’ on the spot by the readers.

You too can publish your poems to the pole for all to read including the occasional humming bird and fruit fly amid the weathering of the sun and rain.

Thank you all who contributed to the Poetry Pole Readings this summer. We plan on having this be an annual summer event.
