The Occult Poetics Symposium brings together some of the most exciting voices in Poetry and Occult Studies for two days and nights of presentations, practice, and readings.

PRESENTATIONS during the days will be on the practitioners poetics as influenced by occult practice. We'll cover topics as diverse as tarot, symbolism, numerology, the power of ritual, embodiment, mysticism, shamanism, witchcraft and magic, historical inheritance and personal lineage, divination, spirit worlds, non-human communication, empathy, intersectionality, ecology and exploitation, and fermentation. 

READINGS in the evenings will showcase visiting practitioners' poetry and offer the opportunity for further discussions of the intersection of the occult with poetry and poetics.
