2022 Conference

The 2022 KPA conference is now finished, and was a great success! We hope everyone submits and attends again next year, and bring some colleagues!

It was a priviledge to have Manuel Iris as our keynote speaker for KPA 2022. He is a Mexican Poet living in the United States, and Poet Laureate Emeritus of the City of Cincinnati, Ohio (2018-2020). He received the “Merida” National award of poetry (Mexico, 2009) for his book Notebook of dreams, and the Rodulfo Figueroa Regional award of poetry for his book The disguises of fire (Mexico, 2014). 

Program Available!
