Advanced Poetry Workshop Course description
So you’re working on a manuscript…
With a beautiful balance of craft and critique, this workshop group will be comprised of a maximum of ten students working on a full-length poetry manuscript. With a focus on revision, and providing effective bi-weekly workshops, students will participate in lectures and discussions in a private Slack Workspace and face to face meetings via Zoom. At the end of this course you will have an entire poetry manuscript with steps/tools for revision and polishing. You will also have catered publishing advice to help you get your manuscript into the right hands.
October 15, 2018 - February 15, 2019 (times and days to be agreed upon by students).
If your application is successful you will be asked to submit via email 10 pages from your poetry manuscript.
