Coastlines & Crossroads: PDX-LA Poetry (AWP Offsite Event)

  • De-Canon Library @ MilePost 5 8155 Northeast Oregon Street Portland, OR, 97213 United States (map)

What happens as we move back, forth, across, up, down, backwards, and sometimes sideways along the West Coast? Longtime friends and cultural organizers Candace Kita (Portland) and Traci Kato-Kiriyama (Los Angeles) host this unique offsite AWP reading on the states of movement between Portland, Los Angeles, and everywhere in between.


  • Alyssa Ogi

  • Ami Patel

  • Taz Ahmed

  • Traci Kato-Kiriyama

Join us for a reading bridging PDX and LA, snacks suited for PNW and SoCal tastes, generative writing opportunities, and maybe even a little insight on planetary movement (also known as astrological insights from Candace). This event is co-sponsored by APANO, the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon.
