Welcome to the Austin Poetry Society!

The April Museletter is here!

Go to our Newsletters page to access it.

The Annual Contests are now CLOSED. Thank you to everyone who submitted!

Please come to the Annual Awards Ceremony on Saturday, May 19, 2018, at 1:30-3:30pm at the Yarborough Branch Library, where winners of the Annual Contests will be announced and first place poems will be read aloud. This is also a great time to renew your APS membership, since they expire in May.



The APS Annual Contests are NOW OPEN!

This year, we’re offering 22 contests with cash prizes and publication for the first place winners. Entries are due by April 1, 2018. Remember, you must be a member to submit. See all submission guidelines on our Annual Contests page. Good luck!




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!
