About: The Los Angeles Poet Society, (LAPS), was founded in the spring of 2010, by native Poet, Jessica M. Wilson.
Mission: The LAPS is a bridge. The mission of the LAPS is to fuse communities of Los Angeles and Southern California Poets, poetry organizations, Writer’s groups, booksellers, publishers, literary enthusiasts and supporters into a unified social and literary network.
The focal point of LAPS is to network and publicize the events and achievements of its members. LAPS also organizes and promotes events, pulling from within its own community, to create and sustain Los Angeles’ literary anchor.
