Membership Makes a Difference!
Donations, grants, and entry fees contribute to all of the Poetry Society’s programs, but none of these programs are entirely self-supporting. Making the difference in the cost of these programs is where membership dues come in. For just $30 per year, you can know that you help fund the Poetry Society’s quarterly meetings and newsletters that keep the state’s poets in touch with each other and with developments and opportunities in poetry around the state. You can know that you help fund the Brockman-Campbell Award for the state’s best book of poetry, as well as the full range of Poetry Society contests for adults and students. You can know that you help fund the Distinguished Poetry Series and other poetry workshops around the state that bring experienced, published poets and educators together with those who are just beginning. You can know that you help publish the annual awards anthology, Pinesong, and help make possible special programs like this year’s 80th Anniversary Reading Series and the award-winning anthology Word and Witness: 100 Years of NC Poetry (1999).
Consistent payment of your annual membership dues makes this difference in these and many other opportunities to keep NC poetry alive and well.
