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

Both September and Tieton, Washington, may seem like they’re a long way off, but if you hope to enroll in one of the master classes at LiTFUSE, now is the time for action. (Note: enrollment is already full for Dorianne Laux, but there are still a few spaces left for Jennifer K. Sweeney and Peggy Shumaker.) Even if you don’t take a master class, there are plenty of reasons to attend LiTFUSE, including Mighty Tieton itself.
