The Poetry Program at Squaw Valley is founded on the belief that when poets gather in a community to write new poems, each poet may well break through old habits and write something stronger and truer than before. To help this happen the Community of Writers works hard to create an atmosphere in which everyone might feel free to try anything.
In the mornings participants meet in workshops to read to each other the work of the previous twenty-four hours; each participant also has an opportunity to work with each staff poet. In the late afternoons poets gather for a conversation about some aspect of craft. On several afternoons staff poets hold brief individual conferences.
