Perhaps the most wild and unique reading Portland has seen in years. Clear your calendar for this event!

Presented collaboratively by Buckman Journal and Future Prairie, This is Portland brings together creativity across medium, making for a multi-genre performance. Local poets will share short-form work and will be joined by musicians offering instrumental accompaniment and interludes throughout the evening.

All in attendance, including the audience, will be encouraged to contribute to a collaborative piece of writing, by offering a line in a crowd-sourced poem which will be composed in real-time during the event and then compiled and printed in the next issue of Buckman Journal.

We believe poetry belongs in nightlife!

Doors at 7:00pm. Show 7:30pm-9:30pm

[Featuring: Jzl Jmz, Libretto, Machado Mijiga, Joni Renee Whitworth, Rich Perin, Vandoren Wheeler, and Helen Spencer-Wallace]
