Vacation with Verse

Meadows, trout streams, forests, waterfalls: The scenery of the Catskills alone is poetic enough. Come April, it will serve as a fitting backdrop for a retreat on modern poetry designed especially for alumni. Penn and the Kelly Writers House are hosting the three-day, two-night workshop at the Straus Estate at Frost Valley. It will be taught by Dr. Al Filreis, the Class of 1942 Professor of English and the faculty director of the Writers House.

The seminar will feature reading and discussion of poems by Robert Frost, William Carlos Williams M’06 Hon’52, H.D., Lorine Niedecker, Marianne Moore, and others. The cost of the course, lodging, meals, and recreational activities is $210. Enrollment is limited to 20 people.
