Connecticut Poetry Society
The Connecticut Poetry Society (CPS), an affiliate of the National Federation of Poetry Societies (NFSPS), is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of poetry. Our group has a long tradition of excellence in publishing the work of poets from Connecticut and around the nation.
Our mission is to support the art form of poetry with chapter meetings, contests, and poetry events. Membership is not limited to Connecticut residents. One does not have to be a poet to join, just a person willing to dedicate time or money in support of the arts.
Chapters usually meet monthly to workshop original poetry and sponsor readings, lectures or programs in their communities. Browse through our site. To get information about CPS, contact Christine Beck at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org . The Academy of American Poets has published a "Poetry Map" of America that features photos, events, and information relevant to poetry in each state.
