Poetry@Harvard represents a vital nexus of poetry-related courses, library collections, events, organizations, publications and pedagogy at Harvard University. Poetry@Harvard is a site of collaborative interchange and, like all great poems, it is an ongoing experiment: It relies upon faculty and students to actively share and exchange information and ideas. “So much depends,” therefore, upon you.
Students@Harvard: We invite you to deepen your engagement with the poetic art form both inside the classroom and beyond, through a wide array of poetry readings on and off campus, poetry organizations, literary competitions and fellowships and prizes. We encourage you to inform us about upcoming events, learn about your poetic predecessors at Harvard, and take advantage of the full range of literary resources that Harvard provides.
Faculty@Harvard: We encourage you to explore the Poetry Classroom to discover a range of innovative teaching resources and to create your own cutting-edge modules for your own course iSites. Poetry@Harvard also offers you the opportunity to inform the Harvard community about your upcoming readings, lectures and panels and to share your teaching ideas with your colleagues. We want to partner with you to develop the next set of tools and to enhance our current information. Contact Christina Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about how to get involved in shaping the future of Poetry@Harvard.
Visitors@Harvard: We welcome you to the vibrant poetic life of Harvard. This site will offer you a portal to Harvard’s poetry community and to its inimitable literary resources.

S. Eliot, Elizabeth Bishop, Jean Valentine, Robert Creeley, Michael Palmer, Adrienne Rich, Lyn Hejinian, Kevin Young, Dan Chiasson and Thomas Sayers Ellis. The site has been supported by the Dean for Arts and Humanities in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the Harvard College Library, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Academic Technology Group , iCommons, and members of the faculty from departments and programs across the Faculty of Arts and Sciences.
