»Support Tabula Poetica

Tabula Poetica Tabula Poetica: The Center for Poetry at Chapman University is dedicated to creating an environment to celebrate poetry in a variety of forms, aesthetic approaches, and venues. Here, we foster a culture of poetry appreciation by engaging and nourishing the veteran writer, the novice poet, the student, and the poetry reader in an effort to share poems and conversation about this art form. We need your help to build our programs!

We launched an annual fall Poetry Reading Series in the fall of 2009, and we will launch the international literary journal TAB: The Journal of Poetry & Poetics in January 2013. We encourage your support for these and other projects. If you’d like to talk with the Director about Tabula Poetica, contact Dr. Anna Leahy at 714-628-7389 or leahy@chapman.edu.
