Traveling Stanzas in the new KSU Poetry Park

Posted Jul. 31, 2014

Traveling Stanzas posters will be on display year-round in the beautiful and unique Kent State University poetry park located next to the Wick Poetry Center on the Lefton Esplanade. The Wick Poetry Center has a new home in the recently renovated May Prentice house just a few steps off of Lincoln Street. Next to the Center, visitors can enjoy poetry readings, a sculpture gallery and Traveling Stanzas designs while walking the paths or just sitting and enjoying the surroundings.
