Alliteration. Enjambment. Free verse. Iambic pentameter. Repetition. Metaphor. Whether these words remind you of a college English course within which you struggled, Bay Area Beat poet Ellen Ginsberg, or something or someone else, poetry is alive and well in the greater San Francisco area. Whether you had a hard time deciphering Shakespeare or you earned an MFA in Creative Writing, please know that poetry is meant to be a community-minded art! You’re welcome to attend a Diesel, A Bookstore event in Oakland, California: Poetry Flash with Literary Magazine Ambush Review on Sunday, January 25th at 3pm at 5433 College Avenue.
