Poetry for the Community

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 think about this in a number of ways, including through readings, performances, community outreach, workshops, contests, and publishing. We believe that poetry is and should be fun, accessible, and meaningful. We are at work building a poetry community in the Greater Lansing area and beyond. Home of the Wheelbarrow Books Poetry Prize, our imprint publishes two new volumes of poetry every year.
