The Gallery is a curated collection of the Traveling Stanzas poems, posters, and videos that have been featured in locations around the world.


Poetry helps a busy world pause.


origin of the project

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 illustrations and disseminated across the region.


The project has continued to expand into a digital Gallery, and has been translated into Spanish, Italian, Mandarin, Arabic, and others.

Traveling Stanzas community arts projects bring poetry to people’s everyday lives through innovative methods and digital platforms.
