Your Topic. Your Poem.

About MPB 

 Melrose Poetry Bureau (MPB) is a Los Angeles based collective that creates interactive poetry experiences on typewriters. We blur the boundaries between poetry, theater, and improvisation to create connection through ink in a wired-in world. We have written and performed poetry at a range of events, which span many facets and spaces of the LA community and beyond. Come and see what all the literary magic is about!
