About the Poetry Society
of Los Angeles
The Poetry Society of Los Angeles harnesses the creativity of a cross section of performance disciplines to bring new styles to audiences in the greater Los Angeles area and beyond. We produce interactive poetry events called Typewriters Anonymous, and offer writing and performance workshops for all ages. Traditions in performance poetry, ensemble theater, structures that liberate, and many writing practices come together to be enjoyed in a multitude of media.
The Band of Poets, Muses, and Music
The Poetry Society of Los Angeles is deeply indebted to The Poetry Society of New York, the founders of the Poetry Brothel, who provide continuing inspiration and support from coast to coast.
