Type Of Organization
Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
The Poetry Society of New York has a simple mission: to redefine and reestablish poetry's essential position in the culture-at-large. The society accomplishes this mission by: a) creating new models for the presentation of poetry, b) fostering vibrant, progressive poetry communities across the globe, c) cultivating relationships in the worlds of art, literature, design and business, and d) presenting the works of New York City poets to the world. The New York City poetry world has largely isolated itself to a small & fragmented circle. The Poetry Society of New York moves through & opens up that circle to unite the community of makers with the community of appreciators in fresh and unconventional ways. Our editorial focus lies in fostering collaborations, amplifying emerging or underrepresented voices, and showcasing the voices of our community.
