Poetry Society of Texas

The Poetry Society of Texas (PST) was organized November 5, 1921, in Dallas, Texas.  It's a non-profit organization.  The Society strives to secure fuller public recognition of the art of poetry, to encourage the writing of poetry by Texans, and to kindle a finer and more intelligent appreciation of poetry, especially the work of living poets who interpret the spirit and heritage of Texas.

PST meets in Dallas at 2:30 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month, September through May, at the Preston Royal Library, 5626 Royal Lane (one block west of Dallas North Tollway) with the exception of November when the Annual Awards Banquet is held at a Dallas Hotel.  

Monthly meetings consist of a short business meeting, a program or workshop, and poetry contests.  The organization holds a summer conference in a different area of the state each July.

It is not necessary to be a practicing poet in order to be a valued member of PST.  Persons in sympathy with the general purposes of the Society are invited to join.  

For additional information on the purpose of the Society, programs, monthly meetings, contests, events, joining PST and member chapters, books/publications, please visit www.poetrysocietyoftexas.org
