Poets who are putting together their first chapbook or full-length book often agonize over what they can do to make their manuscript “hang together” and grab the attention of an editor or contest judge. But there is no one approach to arranging a sequence of poems that is inherently superior. Instead, it has more to do with gaining some perspective on your own work and identifying the themes, images, and impulses that certain poems share. In this workshop, writers will gather advice from a number of successful poets and then take a close look at how a Pulitzer Prize-winning volume was put together.
