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. Our programs provide support for writers at various stages of their development, from undergraduates to established authors. 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.

Writers Series

Out of an abundance of caution, the Fall 2021 Stadler Center Writers Series will be conducted via Zoom. We hope to return to live programming in Spring 2022.
