ARIZONA STATE POETRY SOCIETY
The conduit that connects the creative poetic voice
I hope you've found some cool cubby! I melted somewhat this weekend, thankfully I had a couch and some ice!
There are a few things zooming this month since many of us are still staying home except for the have to stuff…groceries, pet food, gasoline, and work (for a few). I miss hugs. I miss browsing in a store, any store. I miss your faces over coffee. I miss your solid, real time selves. But, we gotta do what we gotta do, and, as a writer, this is the cooking time for some amazing, shocking, tear-inducing poetry.
Announcing the Arizona State Poetry Society's 2020
DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 30!
ASPS is once again sponsoring a national poetry contest in ten different categories. Submissions are now being accepted through September 30, 2020. The top three poems in each category will receive a monetary award. Winning poems will also be published in the 2020 Sandcutters, the annual journal featuring monthly winners and annual contest winners. To purchase previous years' copies, visit our Webstore! Click here for further details as well as rules and guidelines for submissions.
Our mission is to stimulate a fine and intelligent appreciation of poetry, to encourage the writing and reading of poetry, and to further the goals of the National Federation of State Poetry Societies in securing fuller public recognition of the art of poetry.
Pay 2021 dues now
live in interesting times and there are a lot of us that have found creative
ways to be in community.
Just because many of us are cloistered throughout most of this month, that does not mean we have to be without outlets.
