Voices was founded in August, 1971 by Leslie Summers, Reuben Rose, Moshe Ben-Zvi and Jacob Katwan. From this small beginning of four members, the organization has grown to a membership of about 150 poets in Israel and many other countries. Our goals are:
Members read their work at monthly meetings held in Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem and other towns and participate in workshops held currently three times a year.

Voices publishes an annual anthology of poems submitted both by members and other interested poets. An editorial board headed by the Editor in Chief judges the submissions.
Voices holds an annual competition in memory of Reuben Rose, the founding editor. Submissions are invited from members and will be judged this year by a panel of three independent judges. Cash prizes totaling $650 are awarded as well as publication of the winning poems and honorable mentions.
