On this guide you will find a selection of poetry we have at the Library. These poets represent our diverse community, giving voice to the powerful experiences of immigrants, women, LGBTQ+ people, people of color, and people with disabilities in ways only poetry can evoke.
National Poetry Month celebrates poetry in all it's forms, raises up diverse voices, and encourages people to read more poetry. Find out more about the month-long celebration and get involved by browsing the National Poetry Month website.
Included in this guide are resources for you to find more poetry online, find opportunities to connect with other writers, and find events and projects that celebrate the Pacific Northwest's vibrant literary culture.
