Our very own 200 New Mexico poet, Lauren Camp, will be facilitating a workshop at this year’s conference. Here are a few details and a link for registration:
The Tupelo Truchas Poetry Conference is a writer’s retreat at Truchas Peaks Place in Truchas, New Mexico, in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains between Taos and Sante Fe. Truchas Peaks Place offers workshop participants a spacious adobe-style hacienda, panoramic views, astonishing 12,000-book library, sumptuous decor and cuisine. (http://www.truchaspeaksplace.com)

We know the value of sustained conversations that can build meaningful professional and artistic relationships. Jeffrey Levine, Tupelo Press Editor-in-Chief, will be present from the moment you are greeted before dinner on Friday through the farewell breakfast on Monday. Levine will be joined by prize-winning poets Lauren Camp, Maggie Smith, and Veronica Golos, who will likewise be present and available throughout (see bios below).
Before and after the working sessions all three faculty are available to talk with about your concerns as writers: about etymology or the “poe biz” or which presses are right for you, and more. By the end of the retreat you will have a set of new tools for writing, revision and submission to take home from Truchas and apply to your writing life.
