      2012 Sandburg-Auden-Stein Residency
      http://www.olivetcollege.edu/academics/pdf_docs/2012_sandburg.pdf
      Intensive Learning Term poet-in-residence program, from 30 April to 18 May 2012.
      From the early 1930s to the mid 1940s, Olivet College hosted some of the bestknown
      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), Carol V. Davis (2008) and
      Rhoda Janzen (2010).
      During the 2012 Intensive Learning Term, the Olivet College Humanities
      Department will offer its sixth 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 2012 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 Sept. 10, 2010, 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
