Beads on a String: Organizing a Poetry Manuscript

Saturday, December 8, 2018 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

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, participants will take a look at some of the advice that established poets and publishers have given. The class will cover such issues as how to come up with a title, the wisdom of using section dividers, deciding which poems to leave out, and the importance of choosing a first and last poem for the collection.
