Tickets for I Am An American Poet: This Is American Poetry will go on sale May 1 at noon BST. There will be 40 full-price all-inclusive passes available at this point and 20 concessionary-rate passes. A link to the shop will be posted on the main site on that day.

About the types of available tickets:
An all-inclusive pass includes seven workshops over the four days; lunch on Friday and Saturday; dinner on Saturday; invitations to all informal gatherings. (£75/£25 concessions.)

On June 11, booking for all-inclusive passes will close, and on June 18 all remaining places in workshops will be available for individual (‘à la carte’) booking. Workshops booked individually cost £12 (£8 concessions) each; lunch is not included.

Individual conferences will go on sale May 1 at noon BST. These 20-minute meetings are a chance for you to speak one-on-one with a poet about your work. (Sorry, we cannot guarantee which poet will meet with you.) Conferees will be asked to submit a sample of their poetry for discussion with the poet; each poet will read the poems and prepare notes on them; participants will receive oral feedback. These meetings will also be a chance for you to ask any questions about your writing you may have. Individual conferences are not part of the all-inclusive pass and are bookable by anyone from May 1 until they are sold out. There will be 20 places available (£20/£12 concessions).

Readings are free and open to the public! There will be three readings over the four days, plus one very special event in London on July 20th (details to follow; bookable after June 20th, £4/£3 concessions).
