I'm writing to announce a special opportunity for K-12 teachers from the Favorite Poem Project. If you're not a teacher, but would like to help us spread the word, please forward this email to an educator you know.
Former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky, in cooperation with the Boston University School of Education, is accepting applications from teachers and teacher / administrator teams across grade levels to join him for a remarkable week in Boston. Participants will study and discuss poetry with renowned practitioners of the art, five award-winning American poets. Past faculty include Frank Bidart, Mark Doty, Louise Gluck and Heather McHugh.

From the website:
The Favorite Poem Project, in cooperation with the Boston University School of Education, is accepting applications for the sixth annual Poetry Institute for Educators at Boston University, July 16-20, 2007. We invite teachers and teacher/administrator teams across grade levels—elementary, middle and high school—to apply. The Institute seeks a range of participants: new and experienced teachers, those who enjoy teaching poetry and those who've shied away from it.
