The ZZYZX Writerz descended from the rib of a CSULA writing group, where most of the current members met in 2011. Their writing is as diverse as the neighborhoods they hail from! Since their formation they have written two group anthologies: “A Three Hour Tour” in 2013 and “Exit 23” in 2015.
The ZZyZx Writerz group hosts monthly read arounds and open mics within the Alhambra/El Sereno neighborhoods. They are also the organizers of Poetrypalooza, a month-long celebration of poetry in life that hosts events in dozens of creative neighborhoods across Southern California.
Poetry Matters also features an open mike. We welcome first-time readers and everyone else with a poem to share.
