The Georgia Poets Initiative

Announcing the Georgia Poets Initiative:

A new program of the Georgia Poetry Circuit, the Georgia Poets Initiative is a registry of Georgia's best poets who have each generously agreed to give one reading per academic year at a Georgia college or university for no stipend.


The Georgia Poetry Circuit mission since 1985 has been to bring poets of national reputation to audiences in Georgia; the Georgia Poets Initiative will extend and enhance the GPC's mission by bringing Georgia poets to new audiences across the state, increasing access to the literary arts for Georgia audiences and celebrating the accomplished and diverse contemporary world of poetry in Georgia. All GPC and GPI readings are free and open to the public.
