The Poetry Society of Colorado (PSC) is a historic institution in Colorado. It was first organized in 1921 “to cultivate the love of poetry and to encourage poetic talent throughout the state.” This statement was later simplified to “promote the study, writing, and performance of poetry in Colorado.”             Join Today!
