Building Bridges to Poetry

Marin Poetry CenterĀ hosts regular readings and workshops featuring nationally recognized poets. Annually, we offer ourĀ  Marin High School Poetry Contest, our esteemed Marin Poetry Center Anthology, and the popular Summer Traveling Show, a roving series that showcases our members’ poetry in fun group readings all summer long.

MPC was founded in 1981 by a dedicated group of Northern California poets as a non-profit organization whose mission is to nurture the enjoyment of poetry and the craft of writing throughout the Bay Area. We are based in Marin County but are expanding throughout the Bay Area.

We welcome new poets, established writers, and anyone interested in the art of poetry from any location. Join us!
