From the Director, Shara McCallum
Founded in 1988, the Stadler Center for Poetry is delighted to be celebrating 25 years of supporting poets and poetry. At the beginning of this auspicious season and in my tenth year as director, I invite you to learn about our many exciting 2012-13 events and programs. Of particular note are our two newest programs.
In August of 2012, the Stadler Center was very pleased to open its first public art project, the Poetry Path. The Poetry Path is a walking tour of historic downtown Lewisburg and Bucknell that offers visitors the chance to read and hear recordings of poems by living poets, recited in the poets' own voices.
Last fall, we added a second reading series, Stadler Center Slams, which features renowned writers from spoken word, performance, and slam poetry communities. Along with the Stadler Center Writers Series, the Stadler Center Slams offers our audience more opportunities to experience the expressive range of contemporary poetry.
More information on these new projects and all our 2012-13 events and programs, including deadlines for our residency and fellowship programs, can be found throughout our website.
With All Best Wishes,
Stadler Center for Poetry
