Vandal Poem of the Day Enters Fifth Year

September 04, 2019

Vandal Poem of the Day returns this week to begin its fifth year publishing a contemporary poem daily throughout the academic year. This year's poems are from Canarium Books, an independent publishing house established in Marfa, Texas, in 2008, and will be hosted by the Center for Digital Inquiry and Learning.

With the help of funding from the Idaho Humanities Council, Vandal Poem of the Day started in 2015 as a collaboration between the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences and the University of Idaho Library. It has since published more than 650 poems from over 200 poets. Poems are available at poetry.lib.uidaho.edu and on Twitter at @VandalPoem.
