Just Poets is a poetry-centered non-profit organization based in Rochester, NY, founded in 2004. Their goal is to celebrate both poets and poetry by encouraging and supporting area poets at all levels of ability to improve their work and find their individual poetic voices. They seek to do this through workshops, publications, readings and networking within the literary community. An anthology of member poetry, Le Mot Juste, is published annually.

Just Poets also seeks, as part of its mission, to increase the public's awareness and appreciation of poetry through readings, a speakers bureau, written articles and other educational avenues.

Meetings take place on the first Saturday of each month in either Pittsford or Penfield. A featured speaker presents on a selected topic, followed by the opportunity for individuals to receive feedback on one poem at the small-group workshop. Monthly readings are scheduled for the second Thursday of each month at Barnes & Nobles in Pittsford. A featured reader starts with a selection of their work before the Open mic begins, where all are welcome to share some words.
