Literary Organization

The Marin Poetry Center, founded in 1981 by a small group of local Northern California poets, sponsors readings, freewrites and workshops, poetry contests and related events. The Center serves as a place for poets in Marin County to gather and meet other poets and hear their work. The Center sponsors an annual high school poetry contest for Marin County students, and the center's member poets teach workshops in many of the local high schools.
