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.

In addition to these benefits, OPA coordinates programs throughout the year to increase awareness and broaden the appreciation of poetry.

These and other services are made possible through the support of members' dues, small grants, and donations from poets and people who love poetry.
