A meeting place for Yakima regional writers

Publications

The Yakima Coffeehouse Poets publish a chapbook each year with the poems of that year's Contest Prize winners and Honorable Mentions as well as the Judges' Poems. The Yakima Coffeehouse Poets is proud to have published many poets and poems throughout the years. We encourage all to contribute to our annual Poetry Contest and applaud all the current and past year's poets.

The most recent contest chapbooks are available for a $10 donation to YCP either by visiting Inklings Bookshop or Oak Hollow Gallery & Frames in Yakima.  Some past year chapbooks are still available  -- Contact Ed Stover,, for information on past years publications.
