Dear Poetry Society Friend,

The coming New Year marks an historic occasion for the PSA: the celebration of our hundredth birthday!

We are kicking off these festivities with a special limited-time offer to our friends: 

A beautifully designed chapbook of poetry by recent Poets Laureate, including Rita Dove, Robert Pinksy,  Mark Strand, and Billy Collins (currently a PSA Vice-President).
Because of the support of poetry lovers such as yourself, the PSA has been able to continue hosting free public events across the country, sponsor 13 annual contests and awards, and promote the art through Poetry in MotionĀ®.

For this anniversary, we have launched a newly redesigned   In addition, throughout 2010 we will offer a myriad of Centennial readings across the country celebrating 100 years of American Poetry in the Midwest, New England, the South, and the West.

The PSA was recently listed as New York Magazine's 21st Reason to Love NY (see image below). If you love us too, please contribute today.

With every best wish,

Alice Quinn
Executive Director
