The Colrain Poetry Manuscript Conference

Event Details

  • On Friday, October 19, a select group of poets will bring their completed or in-progress manuscripts to this place -- the Round House lodge in Colrain, Massachusetts, and there, in a uniquely beautiful house with a view of three mountain ranges, they will meet and work with publishers and editors Martha Rhodes (Four Way Books), Peter Covino (Barrow Street Press) and workshop leaders Ellen Dore Watson (Smith College) and conference founder Joan Houlihan (Lesley University).

    The Colrain Poetry Manuscript Conferenceprovides the faculty, connections, and a realistic method of manuscript evaluation in order to set poets with a manuscript-in-process on a path towards publication. Poets will also get a look into the poetry publication world and make important contacts as a result. In preparation, poets will work on pre-conference assignments and then in workshops with poet/editors Joan Houlihan and Ellen Dore Watson to review, arrange, and winnow their collections based on the pre-conference work. In addition to the manuscript preparation workshops and editor consultations, there will be evening poetry readings, an editorial panel Q&A, and after-conference strategy session.
