Rejections to Acceptance: Revising poems for publication with Writer-in-Residence Bronwyn Lovell
The Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers’ Centre
Saturday 26 April, 1.00pm-4.00pm
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 locally, nationally and internationally; 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. These should ideally be poems that participants feel comfortable sharing and analysing together with other members of the group.
