Poetry & Coffee is a group of people who get together over food and drinks, each bringing a poem of their choice to read and discuss.

The only rule is that the poem cannot be your own work.

We read, we talk. Simple as that.

And that is where the simplicity ends, as each Poetry & Coffee gathering takes on a life of its own and consistently becomes magical beyond all expectation.

“I have tried to remember throughout that poetry is made by flesh-and-blood human beings. It is a bloody art. It lives on a human scale and thrives when it is passed from hand to hand.” – Edward Hirsch

MAILING LIST: Poetry & Coffee announces their meetups to people on their mailing list 2 days before they appear on social media. Since there are only 15 seats available at each meetup, they sell out fast. Would you like to be on the mailing list and be the first to know? Join here.
