Legendary Poetry Collective

Donate to Support Legendary Collective

The Legendary Collective is a group of artists and community organizers based in Santa Cruz, California dedicated to bringing about social reform through art. We are committed to supporting the youth, marginalized folks, and all who love poetry. We rely on donations from you people to accomplish our goals.

Legendary Collective hosts many events in and around Santa Cruz County, most notably our weekly Word Church: Taking place every Monday evening at the Museum of Art and History in downtown Santa Cruz, the Word Church is a spoken word open-mic and is preceded by a free, informal poetry workshop, led by each week's featured poet, who performs a full set following a brief intermission after the open-mic. The final Word Church of each month during our slam season is an official Legendary Poetry Slam. Legendary Collective has sent several slam teams to national competitions in past years.
