The Ohio Poetry Association (OPA) is an active group of poets and lovers of poetry who have a relationship with Ohio. OPA has members throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, and Mexico. We seek to promote the art of poetry and support poets and those who appreciate poetry.
The Ohio Poetry Association is a not-for-profit organization offering the following member benefits:
In addition to these benefits, OPA coordinates programs throughout the year to increase awareness and broaden the appreciation of poetry. We sponsor readings, workshops, high school writing contests, and poetry "tours." These and other services are made possible through the support of members' dues, small grants, and donations from poets and people who love poetry.
We welcome your membership, your questions, and your participation!
