CALPOETS' 2022 VIRTUAL SYMPOSIUM 

FEATURING LUIS J. RODRIGUEZ

Click here to view the full digital details for this event.  The schedule, subject to minor changes, is posted below.  

This cutting-edge, day-long virtual Poetry Symposium is geared towards all people, teens on up, who have an interest in the literary arts – including poets, writers, teachers, students and more.  Offerings will include creative writing workshops, poetry readings, and presentations geared towards teaching poetry in community settings.  Registration is required but registrants can pick and choose which workshops they participate in.  The conference will occur on ZOOM as a meeting format. The symposium is free.  Donations are encouraged in order to help us cover payments to presenters, and event production. 

For 58 years, California Poets in the Schools has brought the powerful magic of poetry creation and performance to over one million students.  This conference is open to the public and geared towards literary teaching artists (for all audiences), classroom educators, poets, MFA candidates and more.  Content will be engaging for those brand new to teaching the literary arts and to the "old hats" among us.

The conference will be hosted as a Zoom Meeting.  Some of the workshops may have over a hundred attendees, while other workshops will likely be much more intimate.  We are excited to make the most of this versatile, virtual meeting space in order to strengthen our network and build community.

Only registered participants will receive the login information. You are welcome to attend the entire conference or pick and choose workshops that align with your interests.  There is no need to sign up for particular workshops in advance. Simply log off and on to workshops using the Zoom link that will be provided.  

While phoning in to the symposium will be possible, for the best conference experience, we recommend logging in on a computer with a good wifi connection.  The conference will be set up so that each person in attendance will be visible to the rest of the group, however you can turn your own camera off or on.  All participants will be muted, however there may be moments when one or more participants is unmuted to share with the group.
