About CalPoets

California Poets in the Schools ("CalPoets") is one of the nation's largest writers-in-residence programs, with over 125 poet teachers. We partner with public and private schools, juvenile halls, hospitals, libraries, and other community settings to reach more than 26,000 K-12 students each year. Established in 1964, CalPoets is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, with support from the California Arts Council and National Endowment for the Arts, as well as other foundations, corporations, and individuals. Reaching students statewide, CalPoets holds an annual conference, publishes an anthology of the year's best poetry, sponsors local readings and performances, and co-sponsors the national poetry recitation program, Poetry Out Loud.
