The conference takes place on the campus of California State University, Monterey Bay between July 13 and July 26. Scholarship assistance is available. All ages are welcome. The application deadline is May 15. For further details, go to these links:

Each of the guest artists will be present in the program for at least three days and individual consultations with at least one of the above poets will be provided to each person attending the conference.

Housing is available on campus, and the food is excellent. The meal service features a substantial variety of food stations with menus that far exceed the usual institutional arrangements.
