stanza

“The word stanza means ‘room’ in Italian...and each stanza is like a room in a house, a lyric dwelling place,” writes Edward Hirsch in A Poet’s Glossary. Stanza is fully furnished with updates throughout the week about new jobs for poets, our Chancellors and programs, plus new essays, video and audio, lesson plans, and other poetry resources. Click each title below to read more.

Lines of Protest

For the students and others joining them in support at this week’s March for Our Lives, we offer a selection of lines of poetry perfect for posters, banners, or placards.


You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.


Maya Angelou, from “Still I Rise
