Regional Representatives

Regional Representatives help NAPT by disseminating information on the richly varied field of poetry/bibliotherapy. Representatives network with individuals, organizations and/or institutions that are engaged in the areas of education, mental health, health care, creative arts expression, spiritual development, and/or social justice advocacy. Regional reps may also host gatherings or workshops to foster a sense of connection and community using poetry therapy.

Please contact a representative in your area, if you have questions and/or wish to get more involved or connected within your community.  We welcome your involvement and participation!

If you do not see your state and wish to be a representative, please contact us at
