May 20-23, 2016, join us for a no-nonsense, intensive workshop conceived and presented by three of the most experienced poets and editors in the nation: Jeffrey Levine, poet, Editor-in-Chief and founding Publisher of Tupelo Press, Mark Doty, prize-winning poet, and Veronica Golos, award-winning curator, teacher, and poet.
Due to a last-minute cancellation, Tupelo Press is offering a $500 scholarship to our Truchas conference. Please send by email (a) a short statement of need, and (b) three sample poems, addressed to: email@example.com.
“This is a conference where writers really work — going further, in days of intensive conversation and close reading, into the inner workings of poems, trying to understand the ways we can make our struggling constructions of words come more and more alive. Truchas is an unforgettable place, a fierce and vital landscape, and when thunderstorms come rolling over the mountain and the yellow meadows, it feels like the world itself is asking you to look closer, think harder, feel more deeply.” — Mark Doty
