In cooperation with the Kent State University Press, the Wick Poetry Center sponsors an annual poetry chapbook competition for Ohio writers, a National Teen Writing contest, as well as the Stan and Tom Wick Poetry Prize. The winning manuscripts are published by the Kent State University Press, and the winners give a public reading of their work on campus.
This box set of 10, beautifully-designed greeting cards is a product of the Traveling Stanzas project, which aims to facilitate a global conversation through the intimate and inclusive voice of poetry. Teaching artists at the Wick Poetry Center facilitate creative writing workshops for immigrant and refugee populations in Akron, Ohio, in partnership with the International Institute of Akron, Project Learn, and Urban Vision.
Traveling Stanzas is made possible with a major grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and with additional support from the Ohio Arts Council, Carole W. Gould, the Burbick Foundation, the Woodward Foundation, and Kent State University's College of Communication & Information.

All proceeds go to support poetry workshops with refugee and immigrant communities locally and nationally.
