Through generous support, this special weekend has been modestly priced for all participants at only $325.00, which includes all instruction and meals (including two breakfasts, two lunches, and two dinners). To ensure quality instructor-student interaction and the fostering of a poetry community, it is small by design.

We hope you can be among those who will be there.
