Announcing the 2016 Frost Place Conference on Poetry and Teaching
I'm delighted to announce the faculty lineup for the 2016 Frost Place Conference on Poetry and Teaching!
Kerrin McCadden and Rich Villar will be joining us during the conference, and Afaa Michael Weaver will guest-direct the Writing Intensive (formerly known as Teachers As Writers).
I've also tweaked the schedule this year. Rather than working solo, Kerrin and Rich will share a reading and trade off teaching responsibilities over the course of two days. In addition, I've revamped the midweek revision session and have added an extra piece: a lecture-conversation about a poet whose work, to me, carries echoes of Frost and will link to our earlier conversations about his featured poem.
The conference dates are June 25-29, and the optional Writing Intensive is June 29-30.
I know that previous participants have already received pre-registration information, and open registration will begin after the holidays, when the website will also be updated. In the meantime, if you have questions about the program or want to reserve a space, please be in touch. It will be a great week!
