Baron and I will be tweaking last summer's approach, particularly the writing-revision component; so if you have thoughts, suggestions, or worries, don't hesitate to let me know. And if you've been thinking about attending this summer's conference, please apply soon or you may end up being wait-listed, which is far less enjoyable than not being wait-listed.

I talked to Baron Wormser yesterday, and he tells me that the Frost Place Conference on Poetry & Teaching is rapidly filling. So far 18 teachers have signed up, and our limit is 24. I'm really happy about this interest, having had my doubts, in our epoch of economic gloom, about whether or not teachers (and their school budgets) would see any value in a poetry conference. But apparently they do, and I'm excited to meet this summer's participants.
