Our goal is to inspire and support the literary arts.

For the past fifteen years, our annual teen poetry anthology, Navigating the Mazehas reached teens, their families and friends, and others around the world.

Springfield Poets & Writers will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2018. Watch for events commemorating this milestone!
