Why join? To enjoy the camaraderie, the joie de vivre of being with other poets in regional and local events. To enter our annual contest without a fee!

As a member, you are invited to actively join the Society’s efforts to encourage excellence in the writing of poetry and a greater appreciation of poetry. There are opportunities for you to help us build a better and more responsive Society—just raise your hand and volunteer!

We are organized in five regions with a vice president for each region. We have at least one meeting in each region each year, and a two-day festival meeting in May. Our regional meetings typically include an open reading, a luncheon, a program, and, usually, a guest reader.

Our newsletter, A Common Wealth of Poetry, is published at least six times a year and is mailed, or emailed, about two weeks prior to our meetings. The newsletter has information about upcoming meetings and other events. Selected members’ poetry is published in the newsletter.
