Decription: The SoCalPoFest is an annual poetry festival that relocates each year to a different Southern California community. The festival's "theme" will change from year to year. For 2016, our inaugural launch, the event will feature readers hosted by literary organizations, local presses, and local literary journals. The SoCalPoFest is dedicated to preserving the diversity of voices within our community, and this diversity extends across cultural lines and lines related to schools of poetic thought. We want to hear poetry from all who make a practice of it, regardless of poetic affiliation or cultural group. This is how we come to understand and appreciate varying experiences and modes of thought.
