September Spring is a semi-annual interdisciplinary poetry workshop here at the Farm. Each session is facilitated by a visiting poet/writer/artist. These week-long workshops are intended to celebrate poetry, as well as the deeply creative and psychedelic history of the Farm. Considering poetry as an approach, a sense, or a thread that can be woven throughout a number of mediums, artists across disciplines are invited to apply.


Upcoming Workshop Leaders:

Ariana Reines (June 2019)

TBA (September 2019)

Past Workshop Leaders:

Lidia Yuknavitch (2018)

CA Conrad (2018)

September Spring is the creation and collaborative effort of artist Kayla Ephros and Farm director Kate Smith. It is also the pen name of the late Jamie Kanzler, who was a poet, a friend, and a force. His love and support remain at the helm of this project. Learn more about Jamie and the legacy of his work here.
