Stadler Center for Poetry & Literary Arts

Bucknell Hall

The Stadler Center for Poetry & Literary Arts seeks to foster in a wide and varied audience an appreciation for the diversity and richness of contemporary poetry and other literary arts. We also provide support for writers at various stages of their development and careers, from undergraduates to established authors to former U.S. poets laureate. Founded in 1988 as a center for poetry, our 2018 name change reflects and honors our longtime focus on poetry while recognizing our expanded offerings in other literary genres. Our robust programming includes readings, fellowships, residencies and more.
