Cleveland State University Poetry Center

The Cleveland State University Poetry Center was originally established in 1962 at the former Fenn College of Engineering to promote poetry through readings and community outreach. In 1971, it expanded its mission to become a national, non-profit, independent poetry press under the auspices of CSU’s Department of English, and
has since published over one-hundred-fifty titles. The Poetry Center has retained its focus on publishing contemporary poetry by established and emerging authors, while preserving its original legacy of providing educational outreach to the region’s literary community and maintaining a poetry reading series which now brings in an average of fifteen visiting poets a year from across the country.

Cleveland State University Poetry Center is a member of Cleveland Arts Education Consortium (CAEC).
