I am writing to thank you for your history of support and ask you to consider renewing your membership which expired on September 30th.
Your generous contribution last fall helped 2014-2015 be a significant and exciting year. We celebrated the 12th anniversary of our Chapbook Fellowship Program by launching four exciting new voices; we continued to present poems in locations where they would be read by multitudes through our signature program Poetry in Motion and our partnership with The New York Botanical Garden; we continued our Visiting Poets Program at Harlem Academy; and we presented programs large and small, from the major national series A Celebration of International Poetry to intimate readings and conversations with poets about their work.
In 2015-2016, we're committed to making our programs more dynamic and engaging than ever. I hope you will view our full calendar at poetrysociety.org and be inspired to renew your membership.
Thanks so, so much for your past support. I hope you will continue to join us as we work to place poetry at the crossroads of American life. Please visit our website to find out all the details, and continue to be an active part of our community of readers, writers, and lovers of poetry: renew your support for the PSA today.
P.S. As a reminder, our Annual Awards competition is now open, and, as always, reading fees for these prestigious awards are waived for members. Please visit poetrysociety.org for more information about our awards and upcoming events.
