Two linked sessions, must be booked together as one Day School.
1. Claire Crowther ‘Getting Read: build your strategy for publication’
Every poem wants to be read. Where and how is under the control of the poet. This workshop will lead each poet to make a personal strategic plan for publication. We’ll evaluate the state of poetry publishing, poets’ strengths and weaknesses, the good bits and the bad bits of becoming a well-published poet.

2. Rosie Jackson – ‘Putting a Pamphlet Together’
A workshop to help you think more deeply about preparing a pamphlet: how to select and sequence poems, reflect on form, tone and narrative, choose a title, submit and target specific competitions or publishers. Please bring with you 10 of your own best poems, with a page listing the poems’ titles, plus one pamphlet by a poet you particularly admire.
