Dear friends,

Since 1910, the Poetry Society of America has worked hard to fulfill its mission to place poetry at the crossroads of American life. And now, in the final hours of 2015 (the PSA's 105th year) I'm writing to ask for your help to make sure the PSA continues to thrive for another 105.

The PSA presents the much beloved Poetry in Motion program in New York and in cities nationwide as well as fifty free public poetry events annually. Poets at all stages of their careers are celebrated through our Annual Awards and our distinguished Chapbook Fellowship Program.

The PSA also sponsors a phenomenal Visiting Poets Program at Harlem Academy in New York City where students are excelling at creating riveting poems with the guidance of devoted contemporary poets.

We couldn't do this work without you. Please consider supporting the Poetry Society of America today. 


Thank you and Happy New Year!

Alice Quinn
Executive Director
