Mississippi Poetry Society annual conference

This coming weekend is the annual Mississippi Poetry Society conference, delayed from spring 2020 due to the pandemic. One of the oldest literary societies in Mississippi, dating back to the 1930s, the MPS maintains chapters across the state, and I’m honored to serve as their keynote speaker this year. The conference runs from Friday evening to Sunday midday at Lake Tiak O’Khata in Louisville, with readings, workshops, discussions, and the awarding of prizes to students and other category winners — for lovers of poetry in the state, there’s simply no better place to be.
