- Events & Programs
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. We will discuss why editors care about the order of poems in a book, and how to turn your manuscript into a prizewinning collection. This class is open to writers at all stages, whether you have just a few poems, are halfway through a project, or have a fully polished manuscript.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.
Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
