A monthly open mic that takes place on the second Saturday of each month, featuring readings of poetry and prose. This month's featured poet is Tod Marshall, a former Washington state poet laureate.

  • 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, March 10 at the Green Lake Branch, 7364 E. Green Lake Dr. N., 206-684-7547.


Writers Read

A monthly open mic with selected author readings on the second Sunday of each month, presented in partnership with African-American Writers' Alliance.


Poetry 'Potluck'

An informal monthly gathering for listening to and reading poetry aloud. Attendees should bring a few favorite poems. This is a feast of poetry, not a food event.
