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.
