Why join? To enjoy the comradery, the joie de vivre of being with other poets in regional and local events. Our annual contest is without a fee!
As a member, you are invited to actively participate in 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 three day festival meeting in May in Williamsburg. Our regional meetings typically include an open reading, a luncheon and a program, usually a guest reader.
The Society 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.
Membership may include all family members at a single address.
