Lannan Fellows Program

The Lannan Fellows Program is at the core of Folger Poetry’s mission to develop new audiences for poetry, foster community among young writers, and bridge the gaps between academics and the public by bringing students and professors together with an increasingly diverse cross-section of the Washington, DC, community.

The Lannan Fellows are a select group of undergraduate and graduate student writers from Washington, DC-area colleges and universities, chosen by their faculty for their promise and commitment to the art of poetry.
