LiTFUSE time

September 11, 2021

When we posted about LiTFUSE back in April, it wasn’t certain whether the annual poetry gathering would happen in person or online. Now it’s certain and there’s still time to register and participate in this lively event.

LiTFUSE 2021 will be all virtual, September 24-26, with readings, craft talks, keynote addresses, and a variety of classes. (Note: it appears that the “opening act,” with Camille Dungy and Matthew Dickman, will happen the previous weekend, on Sunday, September 19, 2021.)

In addition, there is a free, pre-LiTFUSE event: Poets in Conversation on Friday, September 17, 4:00pm, featuring Ching-In Chen, Claudia Castro Luna, and Diana Khoi Nguyen.

Visit the LiTFUSE website for information on instructors, events, and registration.

LiTFUSE

April 26, 2021

The LiTFUSE folks have just announced the full faculty lineup for this year’s LiTFUSE gathering. Though they are not yet certain whether the September 24-26, 2021, events will be virtual, face-to-face in Tieton, Washington, or somewhere in between, pre-registration is now open, as are signups for the two master classes, which typically fill up very quickly. You can also view video highlights from last year’s virtual LiTFUSE.

Mighty Tieton awaits

If you’ve been putting it off, it’s time to start planning for LiTFUSE. The annual weekend-long poets’ workshop held September 27-29, 2019, in Tieton, Washington (near Yakima), combines writing, exploration, improvisation, meditation, camaraderie, natural beauty and readings to ignite your muse.

The complete schedule is now online, registration is open, and this year, for those who book a room at the Oxford Suites in Yakima, there will be daily shuttle service to and from the Mighty Tieton Warehouse.

It will be a memorable weekend packed with poetry.
