The Colrain Poetry Manuscript Intensive

Event Details

  • On Friday, November 2, a small (maximum 8), select group of poets will come to this place: a turn-of-the-century Colonial revival estate, nestled in the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts, and there they will work closely with poet and conference founder Joan Houlihan and Jeffrey Levine (Tupelo Press).

    The Colrain Mauscript Intensive is a very small, select, highly focused, 3-day conference designed for the evaluation and discussion of book-length manuscripts by editors and publishers. The intensive features in-depth pre-conference work and candid, realistic evaluation and feedback from decision-makers.
    In preparation, particpants will work on pre-conference assignments and then in workshops to review, arrange, and winnow their collections based on the pre-conference work in preparation for editorial consultation. In addition to the manuscript preparation workshop and editor consultation, there will be editorial Q&A, and after-conference strategy session.

    NOTE: The Intensive also includes a pre-conference manuscript reading and on-site consultation by Joan Houlihan.
