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!

    What a beautiful evening last night was...thanks to you all for being special and fun. I think the evening was a poem written in our words, our smiles and laughs and hugs.

    Happy 4th of July...I am thankful for liberty.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
