If you have a pile of poems that you feel ready to shape into a manuscript (either full-length or chapbook), this workshop will present strategies for that process.
We consider aspects of sequencing poems, including weaving, arcing, leaping and linking. We work on titles, sections and how to create thematic currents and coherence, paying attention to what revisions could be done and what new work might be added to enhance the movement and completeness of your manuscript.
Students are chosen by Jeanne Marie Beaumont on the basis of a manuscript submission. Applications must be received by the deadline Friday, September 13 at 5 pm. Click here for submission guidelines.
