Mickle Street Review

Named for the street in Camden on which Walt Whitman lived at the end of his life, Mickle Street Review is an electronic journal published by the Rutgers-Camden Department of English in cooperation with the Walt Whitman Program in American Studies and the Walt Whitman House and Visitor Center.

The journal is directed to a wide audience with a shared interest in American culture of the last two centuries.

Nick Virgilio Haiku Project

The Nick Virgilio Haiku Project is dedicated to the preservation and publication of the haiku poetry of Camden native Nick Virgilio. Supported by a legacy from the poet’s brother and founded on a large archive of unpublished poems, the project also serves as a laboratory for students interested in manuscript preservation, cataloguing, editing, and online publication.
