The Center works to build a poetry community in the Greater Lansing area and beyond. - Recent visiting poets include Marvin Bell, Tina Chang, Gabrielle Calvocoressi, Toi Derricotte, Natalie Diaz, Mark Doty, Carolyn Forch-- -, Tyehimba Jess, Li-Young Lee, Robin Coste Lewis, Thomas Lynch, George Ella Lyon, Naomi Shiab Nye, Carl Phillips, and Ocean Vuong. - - - This position will start 8/16/2020. - The RCAH is a vibrant, multi-disciplinary community that is diverse along many dimensions, including race and ethnicity; gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression; ability status; and religious belief, creed, or ideology.
