Poetry Santa CruzPoetry Santa Cruz is a nonprofit organization incorporated in the state of California. We are unpaid volunteers working to nurture the poetry community and to bring poetry to the larger community in Santa Cruz County. We present poetry readings, craft workshops for poets and provide information on poetry events and selected other events which may be of interest to the community.

Our ActivitiesWe present a reading on the second Tuesday of each month, usually with invited readers from across the country and/or fine local poets. These readings are held in Bookshop Santa Cruz during the months February through October and in other locations in Santa Cruz County during November through January. We present at least four additional readings with invited readers, usually on the fourth Tuesday of the month. We also present an open reading with featured readers on the second Sunday of each month in the Santa Cruz Main Library.
