Stadler Center for Poetry & Literary Arts

Bucknell Hall

The Stadler Center enhances life and culture at Bucknell by fostering an appreciation for the diversity and richness of contemporary poetry and the other literary arts. We provide support for writers as young as undergraduate students and throughout their careers. Originating in 1985 as a center for poetry, the center is now known as the Stadler Center for Poetry & Literary Arts, a name that honors our longtime focus on promoting poets and poetry while also recognizing our expanded offerings in other literary genres.
