The 2018 AIPF Schedule is being put together; the skeletal outline is listed here in order that poets who plan to attend can start making plans. The City Reads (and their hosts) have not yet been named, nor have the Workshops. (One City Read per day is reserved for poems related to the theme of this year’s AIPF -History/Heritage, and many of the favorites will be back.) Venues are lining up to offer places for our poets to strut their stuff. Come back and see us over the next several weeks.
