Event Description:

Okay, so perfection might be overrated, but when we're getting ready to submit poems for publication, it's good to know they've got everything it takes to make it on their own. In this workshop, we'll edit three poems (a perfect number of poems to submit at once) by each student until they are send-ready. We'll try a variety of fun and useful revision techniques as well as workshop the poems in small groups until we're confident they're ready to send. We'll also draft the ever-elusive cover letter and discuss publications to consider submitting to.
