Our mission is to support lifelong literacy and cultural diversity through the writing, reading, performing, and teaching of poetry in Northwest Washington schools and communities.


A big THANK YOU to everyone who made the Music at the Port event with the Erik Christensen Band and the Fugitives a  success!   Especially to Georgia Johnson who organized the food and fed us all, our wonderful volunteers who we couldn’t do this without and  THE PORT OF SKAGIT whose sponsorship made it all possible.

Coming up is our annual teacher training  with poet Oliver de la Paz, September 25 at Skagit Valley College.   If you are interested in attending or for more information contact Molly McNulty, by email:  directorsrpp@gmail.com

Since 1998, our non-profit has put top poets  in 3,000 classrooms, for 1,000 days, inspiring more than 400,000 students in the appreciation and creation of poetry.

“These master poets change students’ lives when they enter our area classrooms. They help students see inside themselves, help them find wonder in the world around them, lead them in the joy of discovering all that poetry makes possible.”

Molly McNulty, Executive Director
