Join Us monthly - 3rd Saturdays

The Poetry Society of Colorado meets monthly. With the exception of June and December, the monthly meetings also include a poetry workshop where attendees may hone their poetry writing skills. 


A wide range of poetry contests are offered throughout the year. Some are for members only, while others are open to all adult poets. PSC also hosts one youth contest per year, generally in late March.


We hope you'll join us at an upcoming poetry workshop or submit to a poetry contest. See details below:
