Everett Poetry Night has been Everett, Washington’s premier poetic outlet since 2006. Gathering every Thursday, (except major holidays), to share poetry and song. We welcome everyone from the page poet to the slam poet, from the rapper to spoken word artist and singer songwriter.
Everett Poetry Night was born at Café Zippys in 2006. Founded and hosted by Garrett Rutledge whose goal was to bring together poets of all ages, skill, and styles into a blended environment that enriched the creative spirit in us all. In August 2013, Garrett passed on the guidance of Everett Poetry Night to Duane Kirby Jensen, who continues to build upon the foundation Garrett built.
New Location as of January 2022:
The Sister’s Restaurant, 2804 Grand Ave., Everett, WA 98201
At Everett Poetry Night, We Trust Our Words
And We Trust Our
Audience to be Mature and
Open-Minded Enough to Embrace
the Range of Topics Shared.
Monday is the new night for Poetry! The Sister’s Restaurant has been a great venue. It has been part of our refreshed vitality. Unfortunately, we poets have been a bit to rowdy, generating a number of noise complaints. To mitigate this, we have moved to Monday Nights, a night those we have disturbed are closed. The move will allow us to bring the mic back…. Join us. Poetry should be festive and spontaneous.
