Calling All Poets

Join the CPP Poet's Workshop, an informal poetry workshop for practicing poets. Beginning in the spring, poets will meet for an hour each week to discuss our drafts and improve our crafts! 

The deadline to apply is November 15, 2019. To apply, submit a portfolio of three poems by email to Dr. Aaron DeRosa,, by November 15, 2019. 

Submissions Details: Please include a cover sheet with your name, contact information, and anticipated spring schedule, and a list of poem titles. The poems themselves should be no longer than 50 lines each, and the pages should not have the author's name on them. 

Selected poets will be contacted after Thanksgiving. This workshop is open to all students, including former workshop participants.
