The Poetry Society of Vermont welcomes new members, both writers and appreciative readers.

Founded in 1947, PSOV is an association of poets and supporters who join in promoting an interest in poetry through meetings, workshops, readings, contests, and contributions to the society's chapbook, The Mountain Troubadour.  Anyone may join the society including high school and college students and non-residents of Vermont.

It's that time of year again:  

National Poetry Month - April 2017!!!

The Burlington Phoenix Bookstore will once again host the annual Phoenix Bookstore/PSOV
Reading on Saturday, April 8, 2017 from 2 to 4 pm.

It will again be held in the downstairs area of the bookstore. There will be a podium and a microphone
with chairs set up into rows for the participants and visitors. 
There is a parking garage across the street but there are new parking "regulations" in Burlington. 
You will need, in some places, a credit card to exit the parking area!

Please let me know if you will be able to attend via my email:  vtkrista@aol.com 
or at my home phone number:  802-893-0566.  Bring a friend along.  

Read your poems ahead of time to see how long it takes for the first round of readings which will follow
a Reading List that I will prepare as people let me know if they will be able to attend. There has always
been time for a second reading so bring extra poems! Thank you.
