Held each year in June, the Conference on Poetry and Teaching is a unique opportunity for teachers to work closely with both their peers and a team of illustrious poets who have particular expertise in working with teachers at all levels: K–12, graduate and undergraduate, and nontraditional and community-based instructors. Over the course of 4½ days, faculty poets will share specific, hands-on techniques for teaching poetry. The emphasis is on the reading-conversation-writing-revision cycle, and our teaching approach aligns with the Common Core anchor standards for reading and writing. Graduate-level credits are available through Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. Certificate of completion includes 33 hours of Continuing Education credit.
This year’s faculty include Jacques J. Rancourt, Tina Cane, Dawn Potter, and Kerrin McCadden.
The 2019 conference runs from June 22 to 26. The optional Writing Intensive runs from June 26 to 27.
Cost: $25 application fee; conference rates from $925 to $1125.
Registration: Apply by May 30 (apply for scholarships by May 1).
