  • WHERE Virtual
  • AGES All ages
  • COST Free

Calling all poets, SDPA authors, returning poets, and newcomers!

The second round of SDPA 2020-21 virtual anthology readings is upon us! We have two dates available, Friday, June 11 and Friday, June 18. Both of these Zoom readings will run from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Poets can choose to read at one or both events.

Preference will be given to any poets who didn’t get a chance to read during the Point Loma Library virtual reading in April. Any 2020-21 anthology authors reading for the first time this year will also be given first crack at the mic.

Returning poets are encouraged to sign up and can choose to read a new poem or the same poem from the anthology.

New poets--who aren’t in the anthology this year but are interested in publishing with us--are also welcome to sign up to be seen and heard and supported by our community.

By all means, if you’d like to come and enjoy the show as an audience member, please do!

Hosted by Michael Klam and Anthony Blacksher.
