Intersection’s poetry series began in 1966 and was the longest continual reading series in California outside academic institutions. The longevity of the series attracted several high-profile writers. Still, it remained dedicated to regularly showcasing the work of emerging and local writers in the San Francisco Bay Area. The series featured poets like Gregory Corso, William S. Burroughs, Gary Snyder, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Ishmael Reed, Margaret Atwood, and Audre Lorde.
