About SMPS

The Southern MN Poets Society (SMPS) is a group of poetry-loving and poetry-generating people.

We enjoy hearing poetry read and experiencing it as performance and some of our members write and perform in the Mankato area.  We range from non-poets who just enjoy learning to accomplished and nationally-recognized poets.  Everyone is welcome!

See our Facebook page for the most current news and events.

We meet at the Emy Frentz Guild (523 S. 2nd Street, Mankato, MN).

The Second Saturday of each month is our brown bag lunch meeting at the Emy Frentz Guild  (Twin Rivers Council for the Arts).  Everyone is welcome!

  • 12:30 pm lunch
  • 1:00 pm program
