The Home School, also known as the Ashbery Home School, is a one-week writing conference with campuses in Hudson, New York (August 9th-14th, 2015) and Miami Beach, Florida (January 3rd to 8th, 2016).
Home School welcomes poets seeking to redefine their practice through a radical consideration of the others arts—painting, music, cinema, dance, new media and so much more. The essence of the program consists of daily writing workshops, studio visits with guest artists as well as nightly readings by visiting poets. Home School is a concentrated, unique engagement between poetry and the arts partnering with the thriving arts communities of Hudson and Miami.
The 2015 Hudson Core Faculty includes John Ashbery, Timothy Donnelly, Adam Fitzgerald, Douglas Kearney, Dorothea Lasky, Harryette Mullen and Eileen Myles. Visiting poets include Eric Baus, Tom Healy, Susan Howe, Myung Mi Kim, Paul Muldoon, Emily Pettit, Robert Polito and Emily Skillings.
