For the last few weeks, the RCAH Center for Poetry has been busy with our annual Read a Poet, Write a Poem workshop. The two-part workshop focuses on the work of a particular poet, in this case, William Stafford, and then uses that poet as a springboard to encourage attendees to create new work of their own. Below are some photographs of the event, as well as poems from two of the participants, Marianne Forman and Dorothy Brooks.

The Center for Poetry opened in the fall of 2007 to encourage the reading, writing, and discussion of poetry and to create an awareness of the place and power of poetry in our everyday lives. We think about this in a number of ways, including through readings, shows, community outreach, and workshops. We are at work building a poetry community at MSU and in the greater Lansing area.
