Books

Below is an incomplete listing of published poetry books written by Santa Cruz County/Monterey Bay poets (including some formerly resident here and still strongly associated with the area). Also included are anthologies and books about poetry edited by local authors, and books of translation by local authors of poetry in foreign languages. Not included are periodicals and anthologies in which one or a few poems by a local author appear. These are much too numerous to list. Please e-mail us any additions or corrections.

When possible, we have linked to the publishers or independent bookstores online which carry these books. Click on the bookstore's name to either purchase by mail or pick up the book at the store. Outside of the Santa Cruz area, please visit BookSense.com to find independent bookstores near you.

We have also created a Featured books page to highlight books by our recent and upcoming visiting writers.
