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 National Federation 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.
