Elizabeth Collins ’21 created a public humanities outreach program to bring poetry therapy to cancer patients in the Greenville community. The program, What a Word’s Worth, was offered through Furman and the Cancer Support Community at the Prisma Health Cancer Institute. Collins received funding for the program from the Wordsworth Trust  after winning a grant-writing competition while studying away in the British Isles before the pandemic. Read the story in the spring 2021 issue of Furman magazine.
