The first annual Crazyhorse/Tupelo Press Publishing Institute will be held June 4-30, 2007. The institute offers hands-on opportunities for graduate students and emerging writers to learn about literary publishing. At the institute, students will work with Crazyhorse Editors Carol Ann Davis and Garrett Doherty in classroom and real-world settings; Jeffrey Levine, Tupelo Press Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, will offer guest lectures as well. Over the course of 4 weeks, students will participate in the process of choosing 25 finalists for the 8th annual Tupelo Press First book Prize, and receive a behind the scenes look at how a first book in poetry becomes successful.
