We don’t do good. We do GREAT!

The (MPS) Madd Poets Society teaches poetry as a holistic means of touching others with powerful messages that heal the human spirit. We teach that there is an inner poetry in all of us and the combination of one’s thoughts and feelings provide a definite stage for artistic expression.



“Our plan is simple yet vast: to provide every youth, regardless of circumstance, a stage to speak profound truth and create social change.” ~ David L. Bush
