A Gathering of Poets

Voices of Tacoma: A Gathering of Poets aims to engage and uplift diverse poetic voices through accessible community programming and a Fall 2024 poetry anthology. Free monthly gatherings and workshops nurture artistic connection and expression. While centered in Tacoma, we welcome participation from poets anywhere seeking to share work inspired by the City of Destiny. Our vision is an inclusive literary community that celebrates the range of voices and experiences within the South Sound. Join us as we platform historically underrepresented voices and bring people together through inspirational poetry events and publications.
