CPS Mission Statement
The Connecticut Poetry Society (CPS), an affiliate of the National Federation of State Poetry Societies (NFSPS), is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion and enjoyment of poetry.
Our mission is to welcome a diverse and inclusive community of poets to share thoughts, ideas and poems with one another through chapter meetings, education, and events. At our core is the idea that we demonstrate the deepest part of our humanity through interacting with each other and sharing experiences through poetry.
CPS publishes Connecticut River Review, a national journal of poetry, and encourages all poets in writing and publishing their poetry. Our group has a long tradition of excellence in publishing the work of poets from Connecticut and around the nation. We currently offer four major contests each year, monthly open microphone events, and educational discussions of poetry through our Poets on Poetry series.
We welcome all poets to join CPS! For more information, browse through our website or contact us at email@example.com.
Several members of the Connecticut Poetry Society recently visited the New Britain Museum of American Art and wrote poems about some of the art they were inspired by.
