All Levels | Bring ten pages of your poems. We’ll discuss and practice techniques for ordering manuscripts for submission to journals, contests, and chapbook/book publishing. We’ll look at what the arc of a series or book can tell us about individual poems, and explore techniques for writing with a series or larger project in mind. After the break, we’ll discuss best practices for journal submission, submission tracking, and how to select the right markets for your work. You’ll then put together a packet of five poems to submit to the journal of your choice. This class includes a lunch break.
