Poetry From The Peninsula


Poetry, like all art, feels more and more essential as the weeks of change stretch on. We're pleased to present Poetry From The Peninsula as a balm in these unusual times. With support from the Foothills Writers Series at Peninsula College, we reached out to a number of local poets, asking them to read works that have meaning for them in these challenging times. Our hope is that you can find meaning, familiarity, and maybe even humor in these poems. New readings will be posted here as they come available. Enjoy!
