Preeti Vangani is an Indian poet & essayist. She is currently an MFA candidate at the University of San Francisco. Her work has been published in BOAAT, Noble/Gas Qtrly and Juked, among other journals. She is the winner of the Raedleaf Poetry Prize and has a debut book of poems titled Mother Tongue Apologize forthcoming in early 2019.

Loa Niumeitolu is a Tongan poet working with the East Bay Ohlone community.

Robert Anbian has been described as “a passionate virtuoso steeped in these times and deep with tradition,” according to Richard Hack, “[whose] poetry crackles with currency – hiply linguistic turns of natural originality, rhythmically brimming with a tempestuous taste of ecstasy, reason, and love.” Dusty Dog Reviews declared him “a genius or a Venusian.”

This series, active for nearly twenty years, is currently curated and co-hosted by San Francisco Poet Laureate Kim Shuck with Jerry Ferraz.

An open mic follows the featured readers.
