2019 Summer Traveling Show Series

Every summer, MPC members perform their own work in venues all over the Bay Area.

Marin Poetry Center was founded in 1981 by a dedicated group of Northern California poets as a non-profit organization whose mission is to nurture the enjoyment of poetry and the craft of writing throughout the Bay Area.

MPC hosts regular readings and workshops, our annual Marin High School Poetry Contest, and the popular Summer Traveling Show.

In addition, MPC publishes outstanding poets in its annual Marin Poetry Center Anthology, as well as in other special edition volumes from time to time.

Based in Marin County’s Falkirk Cultural Center, we welcome new poets, established writers, and anyone interested in the art of poetry from any location.
