I am glad to hear that he cares about communicating with at least some of those who have supported the conference in the past. Thanks for sharing that, Gail.

Default More bad news about West Chester

So ... what happens to that $2 Million if (when?) the Conference fails??
Does the University get it?

Or could the Poetry Center move somewhere else - a different college or university, say - and take the endowment ?

I too wish Jesse Waters well, of course.
He's clearly trying to do what's best to keep the Conference on course.

But ... sure looks like an uphill battle.

A good portion of the NEH matching grant is in the endowment. The NEH grant was to establish the Poetry Center at WCU. Also, a good number of the donors are local. Thus, the university and/or the foundation are obligated to keep the conference going. If the conference fails, the financial question will doubtless have to be settled by lawyers, which I assume will involve the DoJ as this was a federal grant.
