Maryemma Graham, University Distinguished Professor of English at KU, directs the institute, which is a collaboration with the Furious Flower Poetry Center of James Madison University, directed by Joanne Gabbin.
Miller Smith will join colleagues from institutions including the University of Kentucky, Hampton University, Albany State University, Mount Mercy University, Salisbury University, Boise State University, Howard University, Arizona State University, and the University of Texas, to name a few.
