The Georgia Poetry Society Welcomes You 

We’ve been supporting poetry in the State of Georgia for more than 30 years!

Our organization was founded in 1979 for the purpose of bringing into community poets and poetry lovers in the state of Georgia. If you are passionate about poetry, you’ve found the right place!

We welcome members from anywhere, but our quarterly meetings are held in various locations throughout the state of Georgia. The meetings are packed with poetry related programming, including member readings, featured poets, poetry workshops, and various talks on poetry related topics.

We also sponsor a series of poetry contests and publish an anthology each year.

You’re invited to come as a guest to any of our quarterly meetings, poetry road shows, or local open poetry readings/workshops.

To support our future poetry programming in the state of Georgia and to participate in the contests and anthology, please consider becoming a member. You may contact us at
