We are pleased to announce the launch of the Willow Glen Poetry Project!
Willow Glen has for years been an exciting venue for Bay Area poetry. The monthly readings at the Willow Glen Library—and before that, at Willow Glen Book Store—have been host to a fantastic collection of featured readers, and just as excitingly, have brought many local poets together to share the beauty of their words.
Starting in January of 2011, this project will attempt to preserve the ongoing poetry presented at the Willow Glen readings. It starts with this blog, which will present a broad sample of poetry from these events. And later, as occasion presents, we will publish some the best of our literary community’s poems in a print anthology.
Involvement will be very simple. Poets are invited to contribute their poems at each of the monthly readings. We especially encourage the loyal regulars. See the Submissions page for full details.
Please help us to build a lasting record of our community experience. Whether from near or far, come to Willow Glen and share your poetry.
