Come and share a poem, a story, a song; or just a welcoming and listening ear...

"If a novel is winter, and a short story is a snow storm, then a poem is a snowball, squeezed."  ~ Bruce Dethlefsen

Welcome to North Portland Spoken Word! We are a friendly and welcoming group who meet the first and third Thursdays of each month in a Coffee Shop after hours. There is water available, however if you would like something else you will need to bring your own beverage. We also ask that you take your container(s) with you. Welcome and I look forward to meeting you and hearing your Words!
