Poetry is the means by which a place comes to know itself

ABOUT THE TRAVELING STANZAS MAP

Now in partnership with the City of Kent and Main Street Kent, Traveling Stanzas can be viewed on seven downtown Kent utility boxes with easily accessible audio buttons. Future Traveling Stanzas will be displayed in communities nationally, as well as internationally, and users to this site will be able to virtually visit the displays, hear the audio, and receive walking or driving directions.

With major support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Traveling Stanzas is a project of the College of Arts and Sciences’ Wick Poetry Center at Kent State University in collaboration with Visual Communication Design students and alumni. The purpose of Traveling Stanzas is to facilitate a global conversation through the intimate and inclusive voice of poetry.
