The Presidio Poetry Series features readings by local poets, writers and musicians. 

Scott Bird is a poet, painter and a musician, a co-founder of the Coit Tower Poetry Club and the youngest member of the Revolutionary Poets Brigade. Originally from Paradox, Colorado, his works reflect the American West from indigenous sovereignty and wilderness defense to working class struggle and the queer experience. 

Andrew Paul Nelson is a co-founding member of the Coit Tower Poetry Club who meet every first Friday of the month on Coit Tower's back lawn to celebrate the work of SF poetry legends. He is also the co-founder of the forthcoming Apocrypha Magazine. Nelson has been published in The 16th & Mission Review, Sparkle & Blink, and The Evergreen Review. Apocrypha will publish Nelson's 1st full length book, How to Draw a Guillotine in Spring 2024.
