"Poetry is a life-cherishing force. For poems are not words, after all, but fires for the cold, ropes let down to the lost, something as necessary as bread in the pockets of the hungry. Yes indeed." ~ Mary Oliver

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. As the business is closed, only water is available. However, sometimes members bring goodies to share. We hope to see you there ~
