The Center for the Humanities is celebrating National Poetry Month with a new installment of Life/Lines, the daily poetry practice. Novice and published poets alike are invited to create short poems in response to an email prompt sent weekdays through the month, beginning April 1. All poems — in any language — will be published on our website. For more information, or to sign up for the daily prompt, click the button below.
