The Society of Classical Poets website receives millions of views every year. Visitors read engaging, beautiful, topical verse that enlivens Western Civilization's great conversation. That conversation continues in Journal VIII (drawn from poetry published on our website between February 1, 2019 and January 31, 2020). It's a conversation we hope you will join. The Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, based in Mount Hope, New York, dedicated to the continuation of Beauty, Goodness, Truth, and excellent poetry.
