Join Today!

As our Centennial year moves forward, the Poetry Society of America is reaching out to new friends, and we have an idea: join the PSA during the month of June and receive a limited-edition signed broadside of Mark Strand's poem "The Idea!"

Become a member for as little as $25 (student membership) to support a national community of poetry and also receive:

  • Entry fee waived for PSA Annual Awards. (Deadlines: October-December.)

  • A chapbook of Elizabeth Alexander's inaugural poem, "Praise Song for the Day."  

  • A PSA "Poetry, I, too, like it." lapel pin.

Visit our website to become a member today!

It's a busy year for the PSAPoetry in Motion is back on the buses in New York City; the PBS NewsHour featured Executive Director Alice Quinn speaking on Emily Dickinson and the exhibition Emily Dickinson's Garden: The Poetry of Flowers; and Centennial celebrations are upcoming across the country in Atlanta, Boston, Los Angeles, and New York.

We hope you'll join us at future events and help support the PSA through another hundred years of poetry.
