The Coming Forth of Stylus

Welcome to stylus: the blog of the Woodberry Poetry Room.

Our blog will allow us to get the word out about our upcoming events (beyond the closed-circuit of Facebook); to document our latest discoveries & acquisitions; to make known some of the fascinating research that is being conducted by our visiting scholars/researchers, our WPR regulars (which we very much hope you’ll become) and the WPR staff; to invite crowd-sourced assistance with certain archival recordings and films; and to share and extend the audience of some of our other questions and conundrums—from the bibliographical to the lexical to the metaphysical.
