The Wild & Precious Life Series (WPLS) launched April 1, 2020. The WPLS creates a virtual space for poets to share their work, poetry lovers to receive it, and spotlight poets with books released during the pandemic.

Readings are held weekly, typically on Wednesday. The “doors” open at 7pm (EST) for casual conversation, and each reading begins at 7:30pm (EST). See the WPLS schedule page for details.

The series has featured Marilyn Nelson, Dorianne Laux, Patricia Smith, Amy King, Denise Duhamel, Oliver de la Paz, Laure-Anne Bosselaar, Victoria Chang, Reginald Dwayne Betts, Paisley Rekdal, Steven Reigns, Beth Gylys, Major Jackson, Victoria Redel, Ashley M Jones, Dan Beachy-Quick, Rachel Eliza Griffiths, Lauren Camp, Tyree Daye, Theresa Davis, and many more.
