Consultants

Beginning in 2020, BIPF has instituted a new designation. Consultant: Someone who represents an established publishing venue. We ask that you commit to a minimum of 5 consultations and that the method for participants be clearly presented (e.g. with a sign-up sheet at your table, or posted instructions on how one makes an appointment). Consultations will include responding to at least one poem from the consultee.  The tables will be located in the presentation area, and consultations cannot be done while poets are presenting; there will be time, however, during the workshops for consultations, as well as meal breaks and before/after presentations. Consultations may take place at a location other than the publisher’s table. We do not feel a need to quantify these consultations with time requirements or scope of coverage; do what fits your publication best.
