Traveling Stanzas began in 2009 as a community arts project and collaboration between Kent State University’s Wick Poetry Center and Visual Communication Design students and alumni. Poems generated in creative writing workshops were paired with graphic designs and disseminated on public transportation across the region. Bus posters traveled Northeast Ohio, achieving one of the primary goals of the project: to bring poetry to everyday lives.

Traveling Stanzas has evolved since that first series of poetry posters—though it continues to bring poetry to people’s everyday lives through innovative methods and digital platforms—strengthening all sectors of our communities, including education, healthcare, literacy centers and libraries, national parks, museums, social service agencies for refugee and immigrant populations, senior centers, and veteran’s organizations.
