Did you know that LA Poet Society hosts an average of 75 community events a year? Most of our events are free of charge to the public, and are meant to engage the community in literacy and create more creative community. Our events range from Open Mics in person and online, to poetry workshops, to Literary Festivals, and wellness writing events.
We believe in the accessibility of the literary arts -- to share them, to practice them, and to learn them.
We believe in promoting the creative writers and artists from within our literary network.
Since 2020, we launched our social justice-focused publishing arm, the Los Angeles Poet Society Press, where we have published over 100 unique QTBIPOC voices from around the world, and in Los Angeles, through our Acid Verse Literary Art Journal (a bi-annual periodical), our anthology, Los Angeles Poets for Justice: A Document for the People, Love Letters to 2020 chapbook, SELA Poetry Zine, and our newest single author book, Anatomy of a Flame, by Mauricio 'Soul on Fire' Moreno.
We do not charge our contributors or authors to submit their work.
We do not charge them to buy their book -- we give a complimentary copy to all contibutors.
Please consider helping us continue our work. We don't intend to slow down, but we do need some support to continue our standard of outreach, promotion, publishing, and paying writers!
