Perfecting the Manuscript, Publishing the Book: A Workshop for Poets

Primary tabs

“This lecture-style presentation will offer students a variety of strategies for sequencing, structuring, sectioning, and titling a full-length poetry manuscript. We will glean insights about these elements of craft from a wide range of published collections, which include Julianna Baggott’s 'Lizzie Borden in Love', Lucie Brock Broido’s 'The Master Letters', Shane McCrae’s 'In the Language of My Captor', Ruth Ellen Kocher’s 'Domina Un/blued', Krisin Bock’s 'Cloisters', Jen Moore’s 'The Veronica Maneuver', Jennifer S. Cheng’s 'House A', and other texts as determined by student interests.

We will discuss the steps one takes to build an audience for a book prior to publication, strategies for crafting effective pitches to publishers, standard submissions procedures within the industry, and strategies for improving the odds for your submissions, in addition to offering tailored journal and publisher recommendations. The presentation will also include an audience Q&A.”
