There are poetry readings at Three Friends Coffeehouse and Stonehenge Gallery -- I have been to them both, and they are excellent.  Don't remember the exact day(s) of the month, but they can be phoned or googled for info.

Also Paper Tiger Coffeehouse in Vancouver (WA) has Third Thursday poetry readings.

And Tony's Tavern on W. Burnside holds open mics.

Hi Jo,

Check out the Portland Poetry Slam every 2nd and 4th Sunday at Backspace! It's approximately NW 5th and Couch - $5 suggested donation and some REALLY amazing performances.

If you meet some poets there, trust me - they WILL direct you to other places!

Poets,
 
I'm relatively new to Portland.  Absolutely virgin to the act of performing Poetry... but as my writing frequency and intensity increase i find myself searching for Poetry Open Mics and Poetry Readings in and around Portland.  That said, I submit my fear to this group:
 
Is Poetry dead?
 
Is Poetry in Portland Non-Existent?  Are there current venues that i just haven't found?
 
 
 
.... where does one spark the flint to begin the fire?
 
 
Any input would be appreciated...

Announcing a new Meetup for Poems & Coffee Meetup!

What: Autumn Poems

When: Sunday, October 3,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Panera Bread
4121 NE Halsey St.
Portland, OR 97232
[masked]

Greetings everybody!! It has been quite a while since I have scheduled a P&C meetup. This summer was met with family health issues and it was not a good time to focus on poetry. But things have gotten better and I want to invite all of the regulars and new people back to this meetup.

Obviously, we have entered the autumn with cooler temps, rain, changes in lifestyle with school, new jobs, new opportunities, and new reflections. For this upcoming meetup, please write (2) 4 line 20 word poems about your personal goals, professional goals, or a vivid impression of autumn. Feel free to use any metaphor or simile within the constraints of this assignment.

Looking forward to visiting with you again!!

Best wishes,

Mark

P.S. We will also continue our creative exploration in group poetry or as it may sometimes be referred "group therapy!"
