Falkirk Cultural Center

Marin Poetry Center was founded in 1981 by a dedicated group of Northern California poets as a nonprofit organization designed to nurture an environment for the enjoyment of poetry and the spoken word. Based at San Rafael's Falkirk Cultural Center, new poets, established writers, as well as anyone interested in the art of the spoken word are welcome. MPC also sponsors the annual Marin High School Poetry Contest, assigning poets to high school classrooms to encourage young poets. Another popular program is the annual Summer Traveling Show.

San Diego Writers, Ink

Whether we’re scheduling the publication party for a local author’s new book, chartering a bus to take us to the LA Times Festival of Books, or celebrating the seasons, Inksters know how to make an event special. We believe in collaboration and look for creative ways to partner with other organizations to present unique and stimulating programs for the larger community. The Ink Spot offers a warm and welcoming spot for readings, large and small, and we also hold readings at other venues—the Poetry Bench in Balboa Park, on the stage at Lestat’s, and Rebecca’s in South Park to name a few.
