Poetry in a Time of Crisis: a week-long festival

The Ledbury Emerging Poetry Critics program was founded in UK to encourage diversity in poetry reviewing culture and support emerging critics from marginalized communities. The program offers an intensive eight-month mentorship, including workshops, one-to-one mentorship and critical feedback on the writing of a poetry review which will ultimately be shared with a number of partner publications such as The Guardian and The LA Review of Books.

This gathering at GT is the first such gathering in US.

November 4, 2019 @ 3:30 | Location TBD  Jeffrey Levine (Founder & Publisher of Tulepo Press) and Parul Sehgal will give a one hour talk on publishing.

November 5, 2019 @ 7:00 p.m. | Location TBD -  Poetry Reading & Discussion Featuring Don Share (editor, Poetry Magazine), Sandeep Parmar, & Sarah Howe
