OMPOSED OF 13 CHAPTERS spanning the state, CFCP is the oldest and largest poetry organization in California. CFCP seeks opportunities for the reading, writing, critiquing, and appreciation of poetry. To address these goals CFCP has adopted the following statements of purpose:
to further education in the teaching and writing of poetry by children with our annual Childrens Poetry Fair; for youth with our yearly statewide contest; for adults with workshops, open competitions and local Chapters of CFCP.
to increase appreciation of poetry through all channels, including schools, media, and public gatherings.
to promote fellowship among poets through the annual CFCP State Convention and periodical newsletter.
