SCA presents poetry readings, contests, performances and a wide range of other activities for poets and writers, both adults and children.
WordTemple Poetry Series at Sebastopol Center for the Arts
Word Temple is Sonoma County's first long-term, ongoing poetry reading series. Founded and hosted by poet Katherine Hastings, the series kicked off in February of 2006 with readings by Jane Hirshfield and David St. John to a standing-room only audience. Also, the first ten minutes of each evening is devoted to a local poet with a good body of work who has not yet published a book.
