We are pleased to announce that poet Larry Rubin will be facilitating his popular CEA poetry workshop on Friday, March 27, 2009, scheduled for 2:00-3:15 p.m., at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This is a confirmed date and time.

Dr. Rubin has been an avid CEA'er for over 20 years and has been doing this workshop since at least 1985.

Call for workshop poems-in-progress:
If you have not submitted a poem in advance, you are still welcome to participate in Dr. Rubin's workshop. If you are interested, please bring 10 copies of your poem-in-progress.

Dr. Rubin will workshop 6-10 poems, depending on length of poems.

There will be a second workshop, scheduled for Saturday, March 28, 8:00 - 9:10 a.m. This is a confirmed date and time. Poets whose poems are not workshopped during Dr. Rubin's session (due to time constraints or conflicting sessions) will be invited to participate in this second workshop, facilitated by Jennifer Semple Siegel.

Participants must be members of CEA and registered for the 2009 conference.

Membership and conference information can be found on the CEA website.

Bring:
Ten copies of ONE poem-in-progress, 40 lines maximum, any form. No translations, please (unless the poem is your own work and you have translated it yourself).
