|The Robert Sund Poet’s House is Robert Sund’s life long vision of creating a special place where Poetry can be studied and honored. His idea included a house to be built of simple design, modeled on the water tower structure at his Grandfather’s farm near Elma, Washington. Also to be included are a pottery shed and Calligraphy studio, accompanied by a garden.
||Poets House is a literary center and poetry archive — a collection and meeting place that invites poets and the public to step into the living tradition of poetry. Our poetry resources and literary events document the wealth and diversity of modern poetry, and stimulate public dialogue on issues of poetry in culture. Founded in 1985 by poet Stanley Kunitz and arts administrator Elizabeth Kray, Poets House is a home for all who read and write poetry.
