To reserve for one of the twelve spaces, submit a one-page poem of any form/content electronically by no later than June 15 to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line: Submission for Advanced Poetry Seminar. Preference will be given to full-week registrants. You will be notified within 48 hours if you are among the first twelve applicants, and you will be invoiced at that time for the $100 fee. Manuscripts will be distributed to all participants in advance of the conference.
In an atmosphere of mutual trust and confidentiality, we will share our poetry with one another and offer feedback that is supportive and useful, taking into consideration aspects of your piece that are working well, and how you might approach revision. By design, the spirit of the feedback session is positive and encouraging. The workshop will focus on the refinement of your personal voice and help to expand and nuance your awareness as a reader. A one-page poem of any form/content is required of each attendee in advance of our workshop. These poems will be disseminated on the first day so that we may critique a few at a time during each meeting. Open to all levels.
