This poetry initiative is based on the work of William Sieghart and his book The Poetry Pharmacy: Tried-and-True Prescriptions for the Heart, Mind and Soul as well as on his TED Talk “The Healing Power of Poetry.” For more information on the Poetry Pharmacies, please send an e-mail to PoetryPharmacy@utahtech.edu or to Ami.Comeford@utahtech.edu.
