POETRY at TECH became a reality with the creation of the Margaret T. and Henry C. Bourne, Jr. Chair in Poetry, held by nationally-acclaimed poet Thomas Lux, and the H. Bruce McEver Visiting Chair in Writing.
With visionary gifts to the School of Literature, Media, and Communication,and the Ivan Allen College, Henry C. Bourne, Jr. and H. Bruce McEver ensure that in a highly specialized and technological environment, students' aptitudes in the humanities are nurtured and supported as a foundation for life-long learning.
Poetry@Tech events are open to the public with no tickets or reservations required. Plenty of free parking is available just in front of the building's entrance or through the gate, which is straight ahead as you turn off 10th street.
