Welcome

The IPF exists to serve the writing community by creating opportunities to socialize, learn, encourage gifted poets, and promote worldwide poetry publication and appreciation. The About Us link in the navigation menu above will lead to a wealth of knowledge about our founder, history, structure, current leadership, and ongoing evolution of the organization.

We also acknowledge with gratitude the invaluable role of AllPoetry, the world's largest online venue for poets, in providing a springboard for the IPF anthologies. Poems for publication are selectively drawn from submission calls and contests held there, where registration is free and interaction abounds.

Our blog offers a variety of ruminations and presentations of significance to the 21st century poet and poetry lover.  Follow the navigation menu and sidebar links throughout the site to learn of other ways in which we are continually working to fulfill the IPF mission, and how you can be a part of it.

Explore and enjoy!
