The Poetry Society of Virginia

Poetry is for l o vers.

Lovers of words ... language ... context ... form. Lovers of free verse. Expression. Lines. Stanzas. Lovers of humans. Animals. Earth. Home. Lovers of rhyme. Music. Lovers of speaking. Singing...  

Nearly 12 percent of U.S. adults read poetry or listen to poetry through broadcasts, recordings, or web streaming, according to the NEA's 2022 Survey of Public Participation in the Arts.

We illuminate Virginia's poets, cultures, communities, and literary power by making and sharing poems.
