      2011 Sandburg-Auden-Stein Residency 

      http://www.olivetcollege.edu/academics/pdf_docs/2011_sandburg.pdf



       


      Intensive Learning Term poet-in-residence program, late April to mid May 15, 2011. 


       


      From the early 1930s to the mid 1940s, Olivet College hosted some of the best- 


      known writers of the time: Sinclair Lewis, Sherwood Anderson, Katherine Ann 


      Porter, Carl Sandburg, Ford Madox Ford, W.H. Auden, and Gertrude Stein. In that 


      tradition, Olivet has established an annual residency program for poets who are 


      establishing a name for themselves in this new millennium.  Previous Sandburg- 


      Auden-Stein poets-in-residence are John Rybicki (2007) and Carol V. Davis (2008). 


       


      During the 2011 Intensive Learning Term, the Olivet College Humanities 


      Department will offer its fifth poet-in-residence position. The Sandburg-Auden-Stein 


      poet will live on or near campus and teach ENG 247: Poetry Writing. The Sandburg- 


      Auden-Stein poet will also host two public events: a public reading of his or her work 


      and a stand-alone talk/discussion on a subject of his or her choice (publishing poetry, 


      beat poets, def poetry, etc.).   


       


      An award of $3,100 (plus room and board) will be given to the 2011 poet. The 


      Humanities Department faculty will evaluate the submissions and choose the 


      winner. Poets who have published at least one book of poetry are 


      eligible. Submissions are due on Sep
      t. 10, 2009, and should include the following:  


      five poems from your most recent book, a single page personal statement regarding 


      your poetics and teaching, a current résumé and two references. There is no entry 


      fee. Please contact Kirk Hendershott-Kraetzer, Ph.D., Humanities Department chair, 


      with your questions at (269) 749-7621 or khendershott-kraetzer@....  


       


      Electronic applications are strongly encouraged:  .rtf, .doc, .docx formats accepted, 


      .pdf preferred.  Send to khendershott-kraetzer@... with “Residency 


      application” indicated in the subject line.
