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.
