About request an edit to this page

The Poetry Center, located in Humanities 511-512 at San Francisco State University, presents some 30 public readings, performances and lectures each year, on the SFSU campus and at various off-campus venues, featuring outstanding poets and writers from across the literary spectrum. The Poetry Center reading series, founded in 1954, is one of the longest-running such programs in the country, with roots in the 1950s San Francisco Poetry Renaissance. We also house the American Poetry Archives, a collection approaching 5,000 hours of original audio and video recordings documenting our reading series.
