Join Philadelphia Stories editors and top-name poets for the LitLife Poetry Conference, a day of master classes, discussions, readings, and more — including a celebration of the Sandy Crimmins Poetry Prize and Montgomery County Poet Laureate winners.
WHEN: Saturday, April 6, 2019
WHERE: Rosemont College, 1400 Montgomery Ave, Rosemont, PA 19010
This fifth annual poetry conference at Rosemont College brings together poets and poetry lovers to celebrate and discuss the art. The LitLife Poetry Festival annually focuses on poetry’s engagement with the world, and this year’s conference panels continue to explore a range of topics including the relationship between poetry and mindfulness, the role of travel and place in poetry, how poetry helps us navigate our political landscape, and how local presses work with area writers. The day will feature workshops by poets Dilruba Ahmed and M. Nzadi Keita, engaging panels and presentations, readings, and opportunities to talk to other poets and poetry editors at the book fair and lunch.
More agenda details to be announced in January!
