November 16 to 18, 2018 The SoCalPoFest is an annual poetry festival that relocates each year to a different Southern California community. For 2018, the third annual, the event will feature themed readings and workshops. 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.
BookSwell is dedicated to growing the literary community by supporting a vibrant and thriving culture of live events and online content. We offer readers a service that helps them get plugged in to what’s happening in their area and to discover books and authors they love.
For the moment, BookSwell is focused solely on the Los Angeles scene. In the coming years, we plan to expand to other markets in California and beyond.
