"[Poetry is] based in a craving to get ... into the larger, wilder space of things as they are becoming" - "The Poet as Antispecialist"

Artist Rendering for Swenson Park

Soon a new outdoor events space will be established on the site where a famous poet's hardworking and loving family's house once stood.

The park will pay homage to the original home where May Swenson wrote her first poems.

It will be a place for new ideas and experiences, firmly rooted in the tradition of Utah State University and Cache Valley.
