Literary Arts and Portland’5 Centers for the Arts are partnering to present Poets on Broadway – a free poetry series hosted by Portland'5. All readings are free and open to the public and take place on Mondays beginning at 7:30pm in the Antoinette Hatfield Hall Rotunda. Each evening’s readings will feature national and local poets as well as local high school students.

Javier Zamora is the author of Unaccompanied (Copper Canyon, 2017). This dramatic and hope-filled poetry debut humanizes the highly charged and polarizing rhetoric of border-crossing; assesses borderland politics, race, and immigration on a profoundly personal level; and simultaneously remembers and imagines a birth country that’s been left behind. Zamora is a 2016-2018 Wallace Stegner Fellow at Stanford University and is a 2016 Ruth Lilly/Dorothy Sargent Rosenberg Poetry Fellow. He holds fellowships from CantoMundo, MacDowell, Macondo, the National Endowment for the Arts, and Yaddo. In 2016, Barnes and Noble granted him the Writers for Writers Award for his work in the Undocupoets Campaign.

Stephanie Adams-Santos is a 2017 Oregon Literary Fellowship recipient. She is a Guatemalan-American writer, educator, and tarot reader, and the author of Swarm Queen’s Crown (Fathom Books, 2017), and several chapbooks, including Little Fugues (Sola Books, 2015) and The Sundering (Poetry Society of America, 2009), which was selected by Linda Gregg as winner of the New York Chapbook Fellowship. Adams-Santos’ poems have appeared in many print and online journals and magazines, including Guernica Magazine, The Boston Review, and Orion.
