The William Carlos Williams Society was officially founded in the fall of 1979 and was granted allied organization status with the Modern Language Association in 1983. The Society’s purpose is to encourage and advance the study of Williams’s writing and its relationships to modern poetry and other literary forms, both American and foreign. The Society achieves this goal in several ways, primarily through the publication of the William Carlos Williams Review and the organization of panels on varying aspects of the poet’s work at both the MLA and ALA annual conventions. News and calls for papers are circulated through a free emailed newsletter which can be subscribed to by contacting the Society president Daniel Burke at:

The Society hosts an international biennial round-table conference dedicated to Williams studies which was inaugurated at the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany in 2005. It has since taken place at William Paterson University from 2009 to 2017 and the venue for the 2019 conference was the Center for American Studies, Rome. Since 2012, the Society has also secured its status as a Non-Profit Organization.
