- Events & Programs
All Levels | Part lecture and part workshop, this class gives you a hands-on approach to finding the best order for your manuscript to keep readers (and contest judges) hooked. Topics include why editors care about poem order, publishing industry insight, recent trends in literary awards, and more. Open to everyone interested in publishing a poetry book, whether you are just starting out or have a completed manuscript. Afterward, participants can schedule a 15-minute individual consultation to receive feedback on a specific project.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
