Poetry on the Road
SDSPS is taking poetry on the road! South Dakota’s State Poet Laureate, Bruce Roseland, along with other SDSPS member poets and special guests, will be visiting towns across South Dakota throughout 2023 and 2024. We’ll give readings, and we’ll host open mics at each event, where YOU can sign up to read your own original poems!
By bringing poetry to people around our state, Poetry on the Road helps SDSPS fulfill its mission to “foster the creation and appreciation of poetry that appeals to the senses, challenges the imagination, and stimulates creative and intellectual thought.”
All are welcome to these FREE events. Light refreshments are provided. Come and hear some great poetry, find out more about SDSPS, and meet some of the amazing poets right here in our state!
