Ohio Poetry Association

The Ohio Poetry Association (OPA), chartered originally as the Verse Writers’ Guild of Ohio, exists to promote the art of poetry and support poets and others who appreciate poetry. Since being organized as in Columbus in 1929, the Ohio Poetry Association has become statewide in scope. We are eager to assist poets, whether amateur or professional, as they hone their craft.
