2019 Conference Registration Form

Our conference theme, “Our Common Life,” is highlighted by this year’s keynote speaker, Penelope Scambly Schott, with her topic The Personal Iin the Community of We.She says, “Skim through any contemporary poetry journal and you will find lots of poems written in first person singular. Some are persona poems but most are the poet’s own voice describing that poet’s own experience. How does the “I”poem relate to our shared world?”
