TWENTY-FIRST ANNUAL
Key West Literary Seminar

poetry 2003
the beautiful changes
poetry 2003

January 9-12, 2003

The beautiful changes as a forest is changed
  By a chameleon’s tuning his skin to it;
    As a mantis, arranged
      On a green leaf, grows
        Into it, makes the leaf leafier, and proves
          Any greeness is deeper than anyone knows.

—Richard Wilbur
From The Beautiful Changes, 1947

The 21st Annual Key West Literary Seminar will bring together some of today's most esteemed and influential poets to examine and celebrate the diverse voices and styles of contemporary poetry. This gathering should appeal to the most devoted poetry reader, as well as to readers who think they don't understand or appreciate modern poetry.

ENJOY four days of panel discussions, talks, readings, exhibits, book signings, writers' workshops, glorious tropical weather and fabled Key West parties in America's best loved island paradise.
