Mission

The College of Poetry was founded to serve individuals who share a passion for poetry. Guest Poets attending The College will find a curriculum open to poets of all levels of experience, professional to novice. The College's philosophy is that Guest Poets are as much of a resource as the instructors leading the seminars and workshops and that Poets of all levels of experience have something of value to learn from one another.

Seminar sessions will use workshop dynamics much of the time. One of the primary goals of The College is to produce poetry of the highest caliber. The College will be publishing a national poetry anthology that will draw from the work inspired through its workshops.
