At the Bay Area Poetry Marathon, poets from across the U.S. and the Bay Area celebrate innovative poetry in a series of readings throughout the summer.

Co-founded and curated by poet Donna de la Perrière, the Marathon began in Boston in 2001 and has taken place in various gallery and performance venues around San Francisco, including Alley Cat Books, Artists’ Television Access, The Emerald Tablet, The Lab, & The Writer’s Studio at California College of the Arts, since 2004.
