Attention teachers, librarians, writers, parents and poetry lovers! Registration is now open for Poetry Camp (for grown-ups!) — a day about sharing, teaching, and understanding poetry!

On Saturday, October 1, 2016, from 9:30am to 3:30pm at Western Washington University in Bellingham, poetry scholar Sylvia Vardell (above left), poet Janet Wong (above right) and more than thirty poets from The Poetry Friday Anthology series will speak or perform poetry at the conference. Washington State Poet Laureate Tod Marshall will also participate and the day will culminate with a free public performance by guest of honor Jack Prelutsky.

This is an amazing deal. Registration is $60 early bird until June 30, 2016; $75 after July 1, 2016; Students $35. Registration includes a copy of Celebrations Poetry Friday Anthology (Teachers Edition in Spanish and English, a $30 value). Educators can get five clock hours for participation.

    The 30+ participating poets write for every age, toddler through adult, on a wide variety of topics and in a wide range of genres and formats. I feel safe in saying that there truly will be something for everyone! Thanks for spreading the word!
