The Home School
The Home School organizes weeklong conferences each summer. The core components of our program currently consist of the following three daily activities: morning workshops, afternoon performances and nightly readings. Our workshops are lead by renowned poets who have exemplified innovative thinking regarding poetry's involvement with painting, music, sculpture, dance, technology and other multimedia. Our performances welcome visiting artists/poets who work between genres and disciplines, as well as celebrating our attending students in their own creative works. Our readings bring together faculty , visiting poets and participants to intimately read and share their work. Our poetry-arts conferences enable attending poets to generate new work, foster a sense of community, rethink their approach to poetics and the fine arts, as well as question the received ideas of traditional pedagogy and contemporary practice.
