Traveling Stanzas Makerspace

The Traveling Stanzas Poetry Makerspace is a completely refurbished, recreational vehicle donated to the Wick Poetry Center by WKSU.

The Traveling Stanzas Poetry Makerspace is the first of its kind in the country and serve as a mobile, interactive exhibit, showcasing the creative works of our diverse and vibrant community.

This innovative Poetry Makerspace will give our Traveling Stanzas program wheels and bring our digital expressive writing tools and poetry activities to a diverse range of venues throughout our community, such as schools, libraries, hospitals and community centers.

Participants of all ages can engage with creative writing prompts either inside the Makerspace or at creative stations and kiosks alongside the bus. After a decade of successful, award-winning Traveling Stanzas community outreach, the Wick Poetry Center is thrilled to increase accessibility to our poetry activities and programming.

With its gorgeous design and interactive stations, we are excited to bring our digital writing tools and poetry experiences to schools and libraries throughout our community and to use the Traveling Stanzas Poetry Makerspace in tandem with the Wick Poetry Center’s Community Classroom on campus.

We are so grateful for the generosity of our many Giving Tuesday donors and supporters who believe in the power of poetry to transform lives.
