POETS! First & Third Monday of each month, hosted by Jerry Ferraz

Jeanne Powell’s collections of poetry include My Own Silence and Word Dancing.  A much admired poet and cultural critic, Jeanne has made a significant impact on the San Francisco poetry scene by hosting a long-running spoken word series — “Celebration of the Word” — which took place weekly in San Francisco for ten years, and by publishing numerous local and more far-flung poets as well under her imprint, Meridien PressWorks.  Her “Living Treasures”  project was a particularly valuable effort, that brought out the books of four poets over age 70.  Read more on Jeanne at

Nancy Keane — poet, publisher, artist and proprietor of one of the truly great and storied watering holes in San Francisco — hosts a legendary reading series, Poetry at the 33, each month at her bar, Keane’s 3300 Club, located in the heart of the Mission district.  In the photo below, that’s Nancy in the purple blouse, standing amidst her lovely crowd of convivial patrons.  Check the bar’s website at
