I host this poetry salon monthly at my space in downtown Salt Lake City, Poetry on Main. I do this in collaboration with local and international artists in an intimate setting. We are Poets and Musicians with a Purpose of giving back to the community. A portion of the proceeds for each event is donated to a women's shelter in Utah. Whenever possible, we help fundraise for a nonprofit serving vulnerable populations in Haiti.
