The West Chester University Poetry Conference (WCUPC) stands out among other writers’ conferences both for its unique focus on the traditional craft of poetry and for the way it combines a writers’ conference with a scholarly conference. WCUPC is unique because it offers workshops in traditional poetic craft, and provides a national forum to discuss major trends in contemporary poetry. Writers, critics, and students mix together in a notably friendly, informal, and egalitarian atmosphere. As critic Carlin Romano noted, it is "the nation's most intellectually rigorous conference for poets." (Philadelphia Inquirer).
We hope to see you at our next conference where we celebrate our 25th Anniversary and National Poetry Month. This year's conference will be held April 2-4, 2020 with Keynote Speaker, Molly Peacock.
