Wondering how to develop a book-length poetry manuscript? And how to get it published? In this seminar we’ll share tips for generating material for a collection, discovering patterns and arcs in your emerging manuscript, sequencing individual poems within the larger book, and—last but not least—how to submit manuscripts to presses without going crazy. If you think you might be working toward a chapbook or full-length manuscript and want a collaborative space to share ideas, this seminar is for you!
