Beginning in 2014, UConn’s Counterproof Press — a collaboration between the Creative Writing Program in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Printmaking, Graphic Design, Illustration/Animation, and the Design Center Studio in the Department of Art and Art History, in the School of Fine Arts — has made broadsides on the occasion of the annual Poetry Program.  Each year, the Wallace Stevens Poet has given the gift of a new unpublished poem, which Counterproof Press then designs and prints in a limited edition of 100 broadsides commemorating the event and the series.
