"Thank you for everything; what a wonderfully provocative weekend! I have attended many many conferences and workshops while lurking through the swamps of arranging a manuscript, and the revelations of the time at Colrain were the most concrete realizations I have had in the past few years of this work. Thank you for providing the structure and guidance to allow epiphany."
—M. Hasemann, NY

Though many of the poets in this workshop are working at an advanced level and have publications (books and/or journals), this workshop is for any poet wishing to re-envision, deepen and find the best expression of their work, perhaps with the goal of a manuscript in mind.
