Summer Retreat (Special)
Join us for our eighth annual summer retreat—and our first hosted virtually! We thought it was still too soon to gather safely for this in the Hamptons as we usually do, but we’ll be channeling all the beach vibes we can into our Zoom sessions. Join us the weekend of June 18–20, 2021 as faculty members Natalie Eilbert, Marwa Helal, Tyehimba Jess and Jason Koo lead morning poetry classes on Saturday and Sunday devoted to writing new material and small-group afternoon workshops providing feedback on previously written work. Each student will meet with a chosen faculty member over the weekend for a 30-minute conference, and students and faculty will share their work in evening poetry readings on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.
