If a separate personal Paradise exists for each of us, I reckon mine must be irreparably planted with trees of words the wind silvers like poplars, by people who see their confiscated justice given back, and by birds that even in the midst of the truth of death insist on singing in Greek and saying, ‘eros, eros, eros.’

Each year the Erotic Reading is a touching, funny, intimate, sexy time. This year, of course, we’re virtual. We love sharing the joy with poets from three counties and beyond.
Each year we ask for $10, or any larger amount you choose. All monies are tax deductible and go directly to the Ventura County Poetry Project. This is our only fundraiser, and all our projects are funded entirely by donations.
We’re a busy crew, expanding readings to Thousand Oaks and Newbury Park, as well as Oxnard and Ventura, and forging partnerships with CSUCI and CLU. We have sponsored poetry contests in libraries throughout the county, and have sent social justice online poetry videos out into the world.
If there’s any way you can donate more, please do. Donations can be made by going to our website: vcpoetryproject.org and clicking on donate. https://vcpoetryproject.org/donations/ Checks should be made out to Ventura County Poetry Project and sent to VC Poetry Project, 1296 Placid Ave, Ventura, 93004.
