Alabama State Poetry Society
"It takes courage to grow up and become who you
|Our society consists of members
who are venturing into writing poetry as well as those who are
active poets, many of whom have published in journals, created
chapbooks and books of their own, and who appear at poetry readings
and poetry slams. We are an affiliate of the
of State Poetry Societies.
ASPS sponsors contests as well as Spring and Fall meetings where poets can meet, read their work and participate in programs and workshops to improve their writing abilities. We welcome all to join us.
Founded in 1968, ASPS continues to encourage poets and to provide them with opportunities for sharing and growing. Our newsletter, the Muse Messenger, is published quarterly. It features articles on writing, news about members’ readings and publications, publishing opportunities and contest information from a variety of sources.
Our primary purpose is to promote poetry. We do this by staying in contact with one another…through our Facebook Page, our website, our Spring and Fall meetings, and through local readings and local groups.
Interested in becoming a member? Dues are $20 annually (due on Jan. 1 of each year). Students (full-time college or university) join for $7 per year. See our Membership Page if you wish to join.
