September is almost here and with it comes a new round of Austin Poetry Society meetings! Our fall schedule is shaping up to be a great one. We have some amazing guest speakers lined up. Visit our Meetings & Events page to see the list. More details about the poets and their presentations will be coming soon, but go ahead and mark your calendars with the dates, so you don’t miss a meeting. We can’t wait to visit with old friends, meet new members, and share more poetry with our wonderful community. See you soon!

Don’t forget to renew your membership!

All APS memberships expire in May of each year, so now is the perfect time to renew. We’ll be starting up the meetings and monthly contests again this fall, and you don’t want to miss out! To renew your membership or join for the first time, visit our Join the APS page. You can submit your application online or print a copy and mail it in. We hope to see you all again this September!
