The Colrain Poetry Manuscript Conference provides the faculty, connections, and method necessary to set poets with a completed manuscript or manuscript-in-process on a path towards publication.  It includes workshops, consultations with press editors, evening poetry readings, editorial panel Q&A, group critique of selected poems, and an after-conference strategy session. Faculty for the January ’08 conference include editors and publishers Jeffrey Levine (Tupelo Press), Jeffrey Shotts (Graywolf Press) and Chase Twichell (Ausable Press); workshop leaders include Founding Director of the Concord Poetry Center, Joan Houlihan, and Suffolk University Creative Writing Program Director Frederick Marchant. The cost of the January conference is $1,295 (when you register by December 21), and includes tuition, pre-conference materials, lodging and meals. The January conference takes place in the Brandt House, a turn-of-the-century Colonial Revival manor nestled in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts.
