We’re pleased to announce the theme for our 2010 Seminar. Clearing the Sill of the World, from January 7 – 10, will be a celebration of 60 years of American poetry in honor of our longtime friend Richard Wilbur. A two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, National Book Award winner, and former Poet Laureate of the United States, Wilbur has, in his distinguished career, received virtually every award available to a poet. Our title comes from a line in his poem, "The Writer," which you can see on our home page for the 2010 Seminar. We’ve begun to assemble an excellent cast of poets for the event, and will be announcing their names in the weeks and months to come.
