If you would be a poet, write living newspapers….

Don't ever believe poetry is irrelevant in dark times.

—Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Dear Friend and Reader,

Poetry is deeply relevant in these trying times; it nourishes the spirit, keeps empathy and love alive against division, anger, and mistrust. Poetry develops our awareness and leads us back to the inner voice.

Poetry Flash supports poets and poetry.
We can't do it without you! No gift is too small.

Poetryflash.org is a "living newspaper," brimming with reviews, poems, essays, interviews, news, and calendar of events for all of California. It’s our mothership, the same beloved publication that you might remember from its original print format (1972 to 2010). Your contribution now will sustain and strengthen this vital literary resource.

The pandemic broke our hearts, stunned us, and upended our goals. A silver lining is the rebirth of our Poetry Flash Reading Series online, accessible anywhere, and the redesign of our literary calendar to better announce online literary events in California. Visit us at Poetryflash.org and see videos of our events on the Poetry Flash Facebook page.

We’ve re-envisioned the Watershed Environmental Poetry Festival to take place virtually January 29-31, 2021, just in time for its 25th anniversary. We have looked to poets, poetry, musicians, and nature writers to continue an important dialogue on how we truly are nature, how we must seek environmental justice, and the meaning and origins of climate change.

The Northern California Book Awards—our all-genre, annual celebration of authors and writing—was presented virtually on September 13, 2020, with the San Francisco Public Library. (See the event on their YouTube channel!). Your continued support will keep these programs alive.

Let’s do this together. If you believe, with us, that poetry and writing crucially matter, please donate today.
