Purpose:
Whether you write poetry, read poetry, or simply want to widen your literary horizons, the Poetry Society of America has readings, seminars, and competitions intended to challenge and inspire. W.H. Auden, Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Marianne Moore and Wallace Stevens were among the original members who envisioned a society that would not only be a local meeting place for poets, but a center from which a national poetry renaissance would emerge. Current members, such as John Ashbery, Rita Dove, Kimiko Hahn, Brenda Hillman, Yusef Komunyakaa, Sharon Olds, Robert Pinsky and Adrienne Rich carry on their great tradition—and so can you.


Projects:
Working in collaboration with MTA/NYCTA, the PSA inaugurated Poetry in Motion in 1992 and has since expanded the program to 10 cities and campuses, including Amherst, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Fort Collins, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Portland, and Ohio State University. PSA Online expands Poetry in Motion's presence still further with two special website features: The PSA Atlas, a vital anthology of 200 Poetry in Motion poems, and Poetry in Motion Postcards, a selection of poems and graphic designs that can be emailed to online recipients.
