About request an edit to this page

The Poetry Center presents some 30 public readings, performances and lectures each year, on the San Francisco State University 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.
