Poetry etc is a blog by Rayn Roberts providing info on his own and other poetry readings as well in the Seattle area and beyond. Currently he reads throughout King & Snohomish Counties, Washington. He hosts a monthly reading every second Saturday from 4 to 5:30 pm at Green Lake Public Library in Seattle which is open to adults and includes a two featured poets and an open mic. Children must be accompanied by an adult and parents or guardians should know that the content of the poems isn’t always appropriate for young children. Poems for and by adults without restrictions on expression are presented. Depending on time and the number of readers, you can usually share one, maybe two poems in the open mic. Sometimes there’s time for two or three, but not too often. It’s a popular reading.
