A PLACE TO BELONG
Welcome Home Poet!
People, Not Points. That's our philosophy. We are a community of poets, artists, creators and fans who come together to build and grow the legendary poetry scene that ABQ has come to be known for over the last 200 years. As a community we host several ongoing poetry slams, open mics and special events, and strive to bring touring artists into the scene so we can all learn from one another.
But we are more than just poetry hosts. We also strive to engage our community in service and volunteerism because we believe in the role of the servant leader, and we believe artists and organizers have a special role in giving back to the community that lets them raise their voice and speak. If you would like to invite our community to participate in a community event or volunteer activity, visit our contact page!
If you are interested in participating in a reading, attending an event, featuring at one of our shows, or contacting some of our poets, please feel free to reach out and say hello! We love hearing from you!
