The Society Of Classical Poets

The Society of Classical Poets is reviving poetry with rhyme, meter, and good character. Since the Society was founded in 2012, we have grown from a blog with weekly posts to a major non-profit organization publishing the highest quality poetry, as well as insightful essays, educational resources, and the most exquisite art. You could publish it anywhere else or sell it to any publication as desired. The first step in publishing is to have it published on the Society’s homepage and we will check with you first to confirm if we have your permission to do so. Alternatively, when submitting you may add a note stating “do not publish if not a winner.” If your poem places in the competition it may be published by the Society during or before the month of February (you do not have the choice of non-publication without losing your place).

It is in the songs on the radio, in our national anthems, and in the fight songs of our favorite sports teams; it pervades our literature, our history, and our culture. But, despite poetry’s abundance, poetry that is both new and good is hard to find now, more than ever. Such good, new poetry carries a message infused with the profound insights and lofty character of the poet. It touches on humanity’s quintessential quest for virtue over vice, epic over ephemeral, and beauty over baseness.

The Society of Classical Poets website receives millions of views every year. Visitors read engaging, beautiful, topical verse that enlivens Western Civilization’s great conversation. That conversation continues in our annual printed Journal drawn from the best poetry published on our website. The Society is a 501 nonprofit organization, based in Mount Hope, New York, dedicated to the continuation of Beauty, Goodness, Truth, and excellent poetry. I have taken my family, including two small children, to see Shen Yun for the last few years. (You can read my poetry about it “I Love the Dance” and “Upon Seeing Shen Yun.”) But there is more to this story than just another individual review or a wonderful family experience.

Always check guidelines for details and restrictions. If you aren’t familiar with these terms, see our glossary. So according to Muck the “only good Injun” is one who bows down to the god and religion of his immensely superior white masters. Muck is sure to become the Poet Laureate of the KKK, unless Salemi beats him to it.

Evan Mantyk is the president and co-founder of the Society of Classical Poets. He teaches courses in literature and history at Fei Tian Academy of the Arts, in upstate New York. He previously worked as a news editor and reporter in New York City. And look what a difficult, thankless task the White Man had set for himself!

Falun Dafa is one of China’s many privately passed on qigong or cultivation practices. It became hugely popular until it was banned in 1999 by the Chinese Communist Party, which saw the spirituality of Falun Dafa as a threat to its officially atheist government. The human rights abuses, detailed by Freedom House, Amnesty International, and countless eyewitness accounts, are truly atrocious and a matter of urgency. There is something universal in China’s 5,000-year-old culture, as can be seen in the commonness of Chinatowns, Chinese takeout, and martial arts in almost every corner of the developed world. Now, Shen Yun seems to be revealing a new layer of culture that people are quickly identifying as self-evidently beautiful and sublime.

Muck’s breathless press release tells us that his book contains “major poetry by a major poet” and that he is “one of the foremost sonneteers in the world.” (Again like Shakespeare!) Who has made such extravagant claims for Muck? Another Society mainstay, James Sale, a “Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.” (What, no peerage?) As I pointed out in my review ofThe Keystone Scops, extravagant claims have also been made for Mr. Sale. “The Society of Classical Poets” is a non-profit organization that publishes works on classical poetry, classical arts, and classical culture in general. It is the largest organization in the world dedicated to publishing classical style English-language poetry. 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. Poetry writing is also a desire for plenty of writers.

There is more—a LOT more—but believe me, you don’t want to read it. Dusty Grein is best taken in very small doses, if at all. But what about the crime of publishing this trainwreck? I only wish I could be there to hear Ms. Hayden’s guffaws and chortles when she reads Grein’s poem. If she’s drinking anything at the time, I suspect it will be expelled violently through her nostrils.

In 2020, the Society’s online symposium featured A.M. Juster, a major formalist poet as well as the former Social Security Administration Commissioner under the Obama and Bush administrations.
