About Us

Marin Poetry Center logo in blue and black

The mission of Marin Poetry Center is to nurture the enjoyment of poetry and the craft of writing throughout the Bay Area and beyond. Our members are the vitality of our organization.

Please volunteer to join us and help Marin Poetry Center thrive. Currently we are in need of help with hospitality at events (e.g. setting up tables to sell books, shopping for hors d’ouevres, etc.). It’s a fun role, and we will train you! Please contact us at info@marinpoetrycenter.org to find out how you can help.

Our Home

We are delighted to announce our move to the Mill Valley Library. Beginning in June 2019, most of our events, meetings, and other programs will take place within one of the library’s many welcoming rooms. Located at 375 Throckmorton Avenue in downtown Mill Valley, the Library is a fantastic resource with convenient parking and access to public transportation. We look forward to seeing you there!
