Founders Portraits

New England Poetry Club
bringing poets and readers together
for over 100 years

NEPC is a poets’ association founded in 1915 by Amy Lowell, Robert Frost, and Conrad Aiken to foster the art of poetic expression. We run the oldest poetry reading series in the country. We offer an ongoing writing workshop open to all members. We sponsor awards and contests to encourage and recognize poetic achievement. And we look for new creative ways to foster understanding and love of poetry.

Members of New England Poetry Club are poets, publishers, and readers and translators of poetry, who live in New England or have strong ties to the region. We invite you to join us!
