The RCAH 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 conceive of this broadly—including through readings, performances, workshops, contests, interdisciplinary conversations, and engagement with communities. We believe that poetry is vital, fun, and should be accessible to everyone. Through its many manifestations, poetry also has the potential to raise awareness, stimulate new ways of thinking and knowing, and galvanize change. We are at work building a poetry community in the Greater Lansing area and beyond.
