The Boulder Poetry Scene has been a dynamic and thriving arts community ever since Allen Ginsberg started the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics here forty years ago. The legacy continues today with some of the most vibrant bookstores, events, and poets in the country. From the Beat Book Shop to Love Shovel Ranch to Innisfree Poetry Bookstore to Semicolon Magazine to Bouldering Poets and The Full Moon Reading, there are endless ways here to engage with your poetic passion. And because of the presence of the University of Colorado and Naropa University there is a constant influx of fresh energy and true believers in our favorite art.
The mission of Boulder Poetry Tribe is to document, promote, and celebrate this amazing scene thru articles and information. If you’re unaware of us, let us show you who we are. And if you’re one of us, feel great about yourself. We ARE doing it.
