Pittsburgh Poetry Exchange

A community resource for Poets in Pittsburgh

Selected poetry events. Pittsburgh's panoply of poetry will sate the most jaded poetic palate. Among the virtual readings you can "attend" are those of Alphabet City and the White Whale Bookstore.

Sign up for Joan E. Bauer's invaluable e-blast:

You're invited to hear members of Pittsburgh Poetry Exchange read virtually via the White Whale Bookstore, at 7 p.m. on September 24, 2020. Register in advance to receive the Zoom link.
Scheduled to read: Shaheen Dil, Timons Esaias, Barry Govenor, Donald Krieger, and Arlene Weiner.

Selected poetry readings. Most in evening. Most free.
  • MadFridays. Fridays at 7 p.m. at Delainie's Coffee, East Carson and 18th Streets, South Side, Pittsburgh. Sponsored by Carlow University and featuring members of the Madwomen in the Attic workshop. Co-ordinated by Laurin Wolf.

  • Morgantown Poets is an informal not-for-profit, all-volunteer community group that meets 7-9 p.m. the third Thursday each month at the Monongalia Arts Center (MAC), providing literary enthusiasts in north-central West Virginia the opportunity to express themselves, share their work, network, and to connect up-and-coming writers with more established authors. New writers are welcome.
