Inspired by his conviction that everyone has a story and a visit to the Moth in NYC, former stand-up comic Dave Pokorny created West Side Stories even years ago. When the story-slam hit critical mass and began selling out month after month, rather than lose the intimacy of hosting West Side Stories at Sonoma Portworks Dave created a new event to meet the demand; Wine Country Spoken Word was born.

Not one to start small, Pokorny’s inaugural Spoken Word Festival will take place over three days at seven different venues throughout Petaluma. Local storytellers will be featured in addition to national and international spoken word artists including New York Times best-selling author Sarah Vowell and five time champion of the WV Liars’s Contest, Bil Lepp. What do all the artists have in common? “They know how to tell a story.”
