Poetry.LA is an online video showcase of over 150 poets reading their work at various venues around Southern California. Poets featured include U.S. Poet Laureate Kay Ryan as well as video interviews with hosts of our local reading series. The home page is updated with new videos typically every month. Poetry.LA was started by poet Hilda Weiss and videographer/writer Wayne Lindberg as a way to bring broader exposure to poets beyond the coffeehouses, bookstores and cafes where most of these readings were taped.
