Poetry Colloquium


SPRING POETRY COLLOQUIUM | April 29 – May 12, 2016

This is a facilitated retreat for eight poets who have a publication record of at least one book of poetry or the equivalent in periodicals and are working towards manuscript completion. The colloquium offers a small group context. Focus will be on individual manuscript consultations and on seminar discussions dealing with technical, philosophical, or conceptual issues in contemporary poetry. There will be writing time, but please note that group participation is required. Instruction occurs within a deep-immersion over a relaxed 14 days with an emphasis on individual writing and manuscript revision. Application is limited to writers 19 years of age and older from Canada and abroad.
