About the Group

Mission Statement

The Society of Poetry is designed to provide an atmosphere for passionate poets and readers who are students in UCLA to discuss poetry among other literary works at large.

It is most helpful for poets who want to publish or revise their craft and it is meant to encourage and facilitate submission to magazines and further publishing. It is also helpful for those who are beginning their academic pursuit of poetry at UCLA and would like to learn more about opportunities and programs.

The Society of Poetry also intends on exploring contemporary cultural poetic movements, and participating in and visiting readings.

Each month, there will be scheduled discussions and other sorts of activities related to poetry or literature, such as films, plays, readings, and art shows. These will be announced on our blog and through our mailing list.

We hope to organize and promote special activities each quarter that promote our poets and the awareness of poetry on campus. New and inventive ideas are always welcome.

All in all, the Society of Poetry is an opportunity to meet poets and enthusiasts while cultivating inspiration and talent through new friendships.
