By embracing the experimental and extreme, the National Poetry Foundation (NPF) at the University of Maine has nurtured the development of poets whose innovative use of language has shaped modern poetry for more than three decades. Through its international conferences on modern poetry, its publications and journals, and its program of campus readings by nationally and internationally renowned poets, NPF continues to be one of the world's leading centers for contemporary poets and scholars of poetry. NPF was founded in 1971 by Carroll Franklin Terrell as a center dedicated to the study of the poetry of Ezra Pound.
