How Do I ...?
Poetry in Your Community

Artomatic 419!
Artomatic 419! is a biennial program (held every-other year) in the Toledo, Ohio area.  It aims to highlight, connect, and promote Toledo's creative community by creating an atmosphere for artists to network and interact while providing an open-to-all opportunity for artists to exhibit their work. In turn, Artomatic 419! helps to showcase to the community and general public the wide array of artists and styles and the vast amount of talent that Toledo-area creatives have to offer. Artomatic 419! is inspired by the original Artomatic held annually in Washington D.C., founded by Bowling Green native, George Koch.

Ohio Poetry Association
The Ohio Poetry Association (OPA) promotes the art of poetry and supports poets and others who appreciate poetry. Since being organized as in Columbus in 1929, the OPA has become statewide in scope. They are eager to assist poets, whether amateur or professional, as they hone their craft. The OPA works extensively in Ohio schools, helping students to understand, enjoy, and create poetry. The Ohio Poetry Association and its chapters sponsor and underwrite student poetry contests, including a spring high school competition that has been offered since 1976.
