Presenters Of Enlightenment Through Spoken Word (P.O.E.T.S.)


“Let’s enlighten the masses of our metaphors, similes, and soul-filled lines. Let’s open eyes and express the visions in our minds. We are the architects of rhyme”

Our mission as members of P.O.E.T.S. is to grow and develop each other as poets through sharing, constructive feedback, exercises, and participation in open mics sponsored by our organization as well as other organizations. Together we will step outside of our comfort zones when it comes to our poetry and performance and explore areas and techniques that were once unfamiliar to us.

We welcome poets of all backgrounds and experiences to join us. Our goal is to learn from each other such that we can achieve the magnificent compromise between spoken and written poetry. If you’re interested in becoming part of our wonderful organization we can be contacted at:
