Background: Founded in 1970 in a New York City apartment on the fringe of the theater district, Poets and Writers Inc. has grown into the largest nonprofit organization in the United States for writers of poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction. In the early days, the nonprofit became a national clearinghouse of information, compiling a directory of writers and supporting literary events. Gradually the group began sharing news and advice, eventually creating a 32-page newsletter called Coda, which in 1987 became the foundation for Poets & Writers magazine.

Today the magazine shares the mission of the nonprofit to foster the professional development of poets and writers, to promote communication throughout the literary community, and to help create an environment in which literature can be appreciated. It remains committed to serious poets and writers.
