Poetry is an art form in which human language is used for its aesthetic qualities in addition to, or instead of, its notional and semantic content.

The Mississippi Poetry Society fosters interest in writing poetry and provides an opportunity to recognize individual creative efforts in poetry through meetings, contests and festivals.  It seeks to create an audience for poetry in adults and youth and some of its members are also available as a resource to schools.
