Stadler Center for Poetry & Literary Arts

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. Our robust programming includes readings, residencies, community programming and more.

Writers Series

We hope and expect that 2022-23 Stadler Center Writers Series events will be conducted in person at Bucknell Hall and other campus venues. Should the public health situation require it, we will switch to online programming. Please monitor this space for announcements.

The fall 2022 Stadler Center Writer Series Brochure brochure is forthcoming in August.
