Pathways to Publishing Your First Collection, with Tricia Dearborn
So you’ve written a book’s worth of poems … or you aspire to … or you’ve put together a collection but don’t have a publisher yet. This workshop covers the many aspects involved in creating a first collection of poetry. You’ll gain useful information and practical advice on:
- strategies for revising your poetry;
- getting and making use of critical feedback;
- submitting to journals and competitions;
- structuring (and restructuring) a collection;
- researching publishers, and considering self-publishing;
- and applying for grants and residencies to support your writing.
First collections will be the primary focus of the workshop, but all poets are welcome.
