The US1 Poetry Cooperative has been based in the Princeton, NJ, area since 1973. The group publishes annual poetry collections – now on volume 62! The group meets every Tuesday, usually at a member’s house, so if you’re interested in attending one of their workshops you’ll have to sign up for their e-newsletter.

Nancy Scott has been a member of the cooperative since the 1990’s, and took over as the Managing Editor of US1 Worksheets – the co-op’s annual publication – in the early-2000’s. Nancy spoke with me about the early days of US1, and what their hopes are moving forward.
