Hill-Stead has reinvented the celebrated online poetry journal, Theodate.org, to showcase the next generation of poets. The new mission of the journal will be to feature original student compositions, particularly poetry produced through Hill-Stead educational programming and by those participating in the Fresh Voices student poetry competition. All newly-published poetry will be found here in the Theodate section of our website.
