The Department of English will sponsor a two-week seminar in the art and
practice of poetry to be held Sept. 8 - Sept. 22 at the UW Friday Harbor
Laboratories on San Juan Island. There will be lecture and discussion,
reading, critique, informal chat and solitary time for composition.
Participants will be housed in student quarters at the marine station, and
will take meals together in the dining hall.
Leading the seminar will be Cody Walker and Catherine Wing, while possible
guest speakers/poets include Rick Kenney (of the UW's creative writing
program), Jason Whitmarsh (former managing editor of Verse), and Eric
McHenry (poetry critic for The New York Times and Slate; author of
Potscrubber Lullabies). All comers are welcome -- no experience is
presumed, a wide range of experience is anticipated. Current UW students
will earn 5 credits of ENGL 493 to be added to their AUTUMN schedules
(this may affect final tuition, depending on how many credits a student
registers for in Autumn Quarter).
Application is by letter of inquiry to Cody Walker
(codyw at u.washington.edu), accompanied by an application/information form
(available in English Advising, A-2B Padelford, or downloadable from the
program website: http://depts.washington.edu/engl/cw/poetryfh.html).
Application deadline: August 17. Enrollment limit is 15 students, and
acceptance will be on a rolling basis, so the sooner you can get your
letter in the better.
Students will be notified of acceptance within a week of submitting their
applications. A non-refundable $250 deposit is due upon acceptance. The
remaining $1000 will be due August 31.
