The fire you spit on stage can also scorch the page. In this workshop, poets will learn how to refine and prepare their poems for publication. All levels of experience are welcome. Any poet between the ages of 13-19 who wants to learn how to write a book are welcome. Burning down the borders between page and stage, poets will learn how their poems can gain a new life by accessing a readership through publishing. We will build a work sample and prepare submissions to literary journals. From formatting poems to preparing a manuscript, the goal of this workshop is to demystify the publishing side of poetry as well as learn how to give your poems the life they deserve.
