USPiM Annual Poetry Conference-Oaxaca

October 27-31, 2014

Join USPiM in Oaxaca this year during its most magical time of year - the celebration of Dia de los Muertos. Oaxaca city, a World Heritage Site, is a stunning and culturally rich colonial city.

Poetry Faculty: Laure-Anne Bosselaar, Anselm Berrigan and Catherine Wagner (four 2.5hr workshops each). Translation workshops with Claire Sullivan (four 2.5hr workshops).

Special Guests: Andrei Codrescu will lead one 2.5hour workshop (everyone) and a separate 1-hr discussion; Ron Silliman returns for three 1-hr late afternoon discussions, and Larry Fagin will provide individual manuscript editing/publishing consultations.

Readings: All faculty, guests, and Oaxacan poets Natalia Toledo (Zapotec language-translations by Claire Sullivan), Rocio Gonzalez (translations by Laurie Price) and Guadalupe Angela and an end of week open mike for participants!


"Somehow this program fosters almost instant camaraderie among writers of diverse backgrounds and balances time for writing, exploring, and workshopping so you can take advantage of all [Mérida] has to offer."

"USPiM not only allowed me to work with one of my favorite poets for a week, it offered me a community in which I, and my non-poet husband, immediately felt welcome—something that travelers don’t always have. "

"US Poets in Mexico was amazing. Not only were the poetry workshop leaders and speakers outstanding and accessible, the participants were dedicated poets—many of them published writers and MFA candidates—open to new ideas and cultural exchange. The spirit of the workshop was collaborative, supportive, and stimulating."


Visit Monte Alban ($20); we will visit the Xoxocotlan Cementerio Viejo on the evening of October 31st. Both with guides. Other activities abound, visit our website!
