Rejections to Acceptance: Revising poems for publication

Calling all Poets!

Take advantage of the expertise of our current Writer-in-Residence, Bronwyn Lovell, in an interactive workshop this Saturday 26 April, 1-4pm. Includes tea, coffee and individual critique.

This workshop is for emerging poets who are ready to send their poems out into the world, but are having trouble finding places to welcome them.

Participants will learn how to self-edit their poems and review their writing objectively. They will be shown various checks they can perform to judge whether or not a poem is working to its full potential, and strategies they can implement to improve those poems that might otherwise not progress beyond a publisher’s slush pile.

Poets will also receive advice about literary publications and competitions that are available for them to submit their work to on local, national and international platforms; and which ones might prove a suitable fit for their own poetry style, themes and aspirations.

Participants are requested to bring along two or three poems they have written that they would like to improve in view of future publication. EMAIL THESE THROUGH TODAY OR TOMORROW AND BRONWYN CAN READ THROUGH BEFORE THE WORKSHOP. These should ideally be poems that participants feel comfortable sharing and analysing together with other members of the group. Time pending, Bronwyn will be able to offer individual feedback to each poet.

Reply email or phone 9294 1872 to book. $30 members, $45 non-members.
