ANNUAL STATE CONVENTION


Each year the Missouri State Poetry Society holds a state convention for members and guests. The program for the convention features poets of national and state-wide reputation who read from their work and discuss topics related to the composition of poetry. There are also read-arounds during which each member attending the convention may read his or her poetry to the assembly.
