While we are in transition and continuing our search for a stable home base, we will continue to produce events with some of our neighborhood partners!
This AltLib Popup Series will run through the summer, presenting roving events to continue supporting expansive art projects and dig deep for uncommon cultural exchanges, while we search for a new space to ground our collective. If you’re interested in setting up a show with us, please read our booking page and send us an e-mail.

Poetrynite ft Nate Witham
April 29, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
It’s the last poetrynight of National Poetry Month, and we’ve got another local poet to share with you.
As usual, we’ll start with open mic, give our feature some time and then close out with whoever didn’t get a chance to read.
Nate Witham is a monstrous mountain man from Montana; with venison tendons in his teeth and the word in his gut. Poetry is the gristle of his meat, but lately he’s been trying on some longer forms; playing with prose as it were. Nate’s work is grounded very much in physical reality, but only to serve as a platform for externalized introspection; taking a long look in the mirror and getting lost in his pores.
The second longest running Bellingham poetry group – Poetrynight.
All people are invited to join the group any Monday night at 7pm. You don’t have to be a writer to participate as readers of all ages are always invited to sign up to read between 7-7:30. Not all works must be originals.
Poetrynight got its start in Stuart’s Coffeehouse in 1995, when a group of poets gathered around a table to share their current work. It has grown over the years as it moved to different locations.
Poetrynight is a program under the Whatcom poetry series, and besides the weekly open mic/feature, can provide creative writing workshops for schools.
