2015-16 Fall 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.

September 23 Reading

A very appreciative thank you to Cheryl Latif who so graciously hosted the summer readings and kept the poetic home fires burning.

It is good to be back hosting the poetrybridge readings starting with the September reading featuring Rayn Roberts and Scott Bastian. SEE BIOS

Rayn is a long time favorite at poetrybridge and I look forward to hearing him read again although I must warn you that it is doubtful that any of his poems will be about the mythical birds know as the seahawks.

Scott, fresh back from the Burning Man festival earlier this month, will enliven us with his eclectic mix of interests from skepticism to science and beyond.

The evening will also feature the COMMUNITY MIC READERS who often delight our ears and imagination and expand the way we see our world.

Poetry Pole

The poetrypole is shown here bristling with poems in its more recent heyday.

The pole is a publishing option that is open for all of your musings and creations 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
