Partnering with Poets for Science founder, poet, and environmental spokesperson Jane Hirshfield, the Wick Poetry Center joined the 2017 March for Science on the National Mall in Washington D.C.
The Wick Poetry Center invites people from around the world to contribute a line or stanzas to a global community peace poem titled, “My Voice.” This project commemorates the 50th anniversary of the May 4, 1970 shootings at Kent State University, with themes that reflect peace, conflict transformation, and advocacy.
In collaboration with the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary, Earth Stanzas is an interactive online poetry project in honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.

About the Chautauqua Poetry Makerspace
The Chautauqua Poetry Makerspace was created in partnership between Chautauqua Literary Arts and the Wick Poetry Center’s Traveling Stanzas at Kent State University. The makerspace has been a unique staple of the Chautauqua Literary Arts program for the last three years. Throughout the summer season, any visitor can flex their creative muscles and make a poem using the online poetry makerspace.
