Registration for the Long Poems ::: Major Forms Conference is now open.  

Long Poems ::: Major Forms

An international conference that will consider ways in which comprehensive, often formally complex and expansive poems may respond, or fail to respond, to certain “obligations toward the difficult whole,” and to explore what these obligations might now entail; it will address aesthetic, formal, generic, compositional and literary-historical questions the ‘long poem’ brings into particular focus.

Speakers include:

Charles Bernstein (U Penn)
Rachel Blau DuPlessis (Temple)
Ronald Bush (Oxford)
Simon Jarvis (Cambridge)
Tony Lopez (Plymouth)
Peter Middleton (Southampton)

The full conference will be £40 waged; £25 unwaged – for a single day the prices are £25 and £15.  £5 for Sussex affiliates.

Please follow the link to register before the 1st of May, the conference will be held on the 16th and 17th of May.


Those without access to British cheque-books should send in a completed form and then pay at the conference.

All queries should be sent to:
