Members-Only Poetry First Page Feedback Session

Members-Only Poetry First Page Feedback Session

Please note: This workshop is for Writespace members only—if you are not a member and would like to attend, please join Writespace at this link.

Are you a poet who has wondered what a critique from a professional editor is like? Do you wish you could have an editor’s support and feedback, but you don’t feel ready to incur the cost? Or are you just starting out and would like to know what’s important to keep in mind as you begin to write poetry?

In this three-hour workshop we will embark upon a fast, fun, and in-depth adventure in which we explore the fundamentals and subtleties of dozens of craft elements essential to composing great poetry. By the end of our session, attending poets will have attained greater clarity about what questions good writers ask as they work, as well as a clearer sense of what editors and agents look for when they receive a submission.

Also, each poet will be assigned an exercise or prompt customized to the page we critiqued and designed to vitalize both the specific work and the writer’s development.

Please bring to workshop ten printed copies of a poem no more than one page long for the group and the instructor’s review.
