Poetry Options at the Port Townsend Writers’ Conference

Adrian Castro_by Pedro Portal As 2009 opens we're very excited about what's happening at Centrum this year, with more year-round readings, workshops, craft lectures, and community events than ever before.

During the week-long Port Townsend Writers' Conference, happening July 12-19, there will be three separate morning workshops in poetry, featuring Robert Wrigley and Adrian Castro (pictured) leading generative workshops, and Mark Doty leading a master class workshops for poets currently collating their poems into a manuscript.

The Robert Wrigley workshop has only one space left, out of fourteen, and the Adrian Castro and Mark Doty workshops each has space available, as well.

"Adrian Castro that wonderfully rare combination," says Artistic Director Cristina García. "He's an artist who melds the esoteric with the sensual, the philosophical with the folkloric, all with a rhythm and sensibility uniquely his own. This year, I served as a judge for the Cintas Fellowship, the foremost prize of its kind for Cuban artists and was delighted to learn that my fellow judges were as enamored of Adrian’s writing as I was. We unanimously voted to give him a Cintas. Adrian is a very popular teacher and performer in Miami and his presence in Port Townsend this summer will be a great gift to the West Coast."

Registration for all workshops is available here, as well as by calling the Centrum Registrar at 360.385.3102, 114.
