Dear Friend of the Festival,

We are so excited about our Fifth Anniversary Festival, January 19-24, 2009 and we want to let you know we are now accepting applications for workshops.

Our faculty this year includes Martin Espada, Kimiko Hahn, Thomas Lux, Laura Kasischke, Anne Marie Macari, Gerald Stern, Gregory Orr, Denise Duhamel, and Victoria Redel.

We will also welcome Florida poets Kelle Groom, and Michael Hettich, for a special reading. Winners of the High School Poetry Contest will receive their awards. Taylor Mali, and Lynne Procope will perform at our annual late-night Coffee House event. The deadline to apply for workshops is October 31, 2008.

For more details and to apply, visit for workshop descriptions, biographies of our faculty poets, and news about the festival.

We would welcome the opportunity to welcome you as a part of this half-decade celebration of poetry. They say Beethoven's Fifth was his best--we are following Ludwig's lead! Don't miss it!

Warm regards,

Miles A. Coon, Director
Palm Beach Poetry Festival

Susan R. Williamson, Assistant Director
Palm Beach Poetry Festival
