Regional Representatives

We want to thank our Regional Representatives who are helping to raise NAPT’s visibility and promote membership in NAPT! 

They help by disseminating information on the richly varied field of poetry/bibliotherapy by networking 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.

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