Traveling Stanzas: Immigrant Voices

Lakewood Public Library and the Friends of Lakewood Public Library are proud to partner with the Wick Poetry Center at Kent State University to host Traveling Stanzas: Immigrant Voices, an interactive exhibit including creative writing tools and activities. Acknowledging the unique experiences of immigrants in our community, this public display engages a dialogue through the intimate and inclusive voice of poetry.

Traveling Stanzas: Immigrant Voices contains original poetry written by people in our community. Emerge texts are updated every time a new poem is created in the exhibit. The Emerge Stations at Main Library and Madison Branch allow visitors to create their own “erasure” poetry using original texts. View poems.
