Named for local literary icons Vachel Lindsay and Hart Crane, the Lindsay-Crane Center for Writing and Literature serves as both an academic hub and a community space. It was founded in 2006. To support a community reading program and a scholar-in-residence, the NEH awarded a challenge grant to the Center in 2011, spurring it to raise an additional $180,000 from other funding sources. Today, the Center hosts Hiram’s Writing Across the Curriculum Program and offers students mentoring opportunities, assistance locating internships, and the chance to have their writing read by professional authors. The community reading program, which is open to the public, has hosted a number of prominent authors, among them the New Yorker’s Mary Norris and Utah's Poet Laureate Paisley Rekdal.
