Poets West is a Seattle-based nonprofit literary organization, links the poet with readers and listeners in the broader democratic community. Although poets write their poems in solitude, they do take pride in their craft and usually want to share their poems with an audience. PoetsWest coordinates a variety of reading venues, provides a network for poets and poetry, and produces a weekly radio program of poetry, stories and music from the studios of KSER 90.7 FM in Everett, Washington. These radio programs are syndicated through the Pacifica Radio network on its website AudioPort.org and made available to nonprofit and community radio stations around the globe. Along the way, PoetsWest learned a few things about what the gift of poetry means to the community and how the poet connects to that community and to the larger world.
