Who is the Poetry Society of Tennessee Northeast Chapter?
The Poetry Society of Tennessee - Northeast Tennessee chapter represents a group of authors dedicated to excellence in poetry writing. We strive continually to perfect our craft and welcome all those who share our desire to develop as poets.
The Poetry Society of Tennessee (PST) at Memphis was created over 50 years ago and is recognized as Tennessee's state society in the National Federation of State Poetry Societies (NFSPS).
The local PST-NE chapter extends membership into the northeast corner of our state (and across our border since Tennessee residency is not a membership requirement).

Membership entitles you to attend the PST-NE poetry readings on the 4th Saturday of the month and any locally sponsored activities and events, as well as state and national activities.
