Stadler Center for Poetry
Founded at Bucknell in 1988 by Professor John Wheatcroft and philanthropist Jack Stadler and currently directed by Shara McCallum, the Stadler Center for Poetry is a professional literary center offering a wide range of programs and residencies for emerging and established poets and writers. It is also the seat of the English Department's creative writing program and the home of West Branch, Bucknell's national journal of poetry, fiction, essays, and reviews, edited by G.C. Waldrep. The Stadler Center is housed in Bucknell Hall, an historic campus building that contains a large auditorium for readings, offices for the staff and creative writing faculty, and the Mildred Martin Poetry Library and Lounge.
