My alma mater's been on my mind a lot lately, and I was perusing its Web site when I found this new beta offering: Poetry@Harvard, which offers "a vital nexus of poetry-related courses, library collections, events, organizations, publications and pedagogy at Harvard University."

Erika, thanks for posting about Poetry@Harvard--I hadn't heard about it. I always think that creative writing doesn't get enough attention at Harvard (also my alma mater!) and this is a lovely resource. The "15-minute Poetry Intensives" are especially interesting, and I'm not even a poet!

Hi, Celeste, and thank you for your comment. I was happily surprised to stumble on that site.

I so agree with you about cw at Harvard. Once upon a time, when I was still teaching there, I proposed a project (via the Bok Center) to help change that. Alas.

Now, they need to create "Prose@Harvard." Or, why couldn't they have created "Poetry&Prose@Harvard"?
