DEMYSTIFYING THE MANUSCRIPT (ZOOM CLASS)
HoW TO COncEPTUALIZE, ORGANIZE & Publish Your Poetry Book
with Susan Rich & KELLI RUSSELL AGODON
Join Susan Rich, Kelli Russell Agodon, and guest faculty, Diane Seuss & January Gill O'Neil for a comprehensive manuscript class on Saturday, February 13, 2021 from 10 am - 4 pm PST (On Zoom)
How does a notebook full of poems transform into a published collection? How does one choose an enticing title, the right layout? Chapbook or full-length? Contest route or open reading periods? Come spend the day working on your poetry manuscript from the comfort of your own home and find out the answers to these questions.
This unique class includes: an intensive morning session with facts and figures, creation of your mission statement, and determining your own publication goals as a poet. The class will also include several ways to organize your manuscript, strategies to create your strongest manuscript, guest poets sharing their tips and stories to publication, a Q&A literary salon, and much more.
We are thrilled that Diane Seuss, who was shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize as well as award-winning poet January Gill O'Neil, will be joining us for a short talk on their own journey to publication, and also a Q&A on their process and what they've learned as poets putting together manuscripts.
Participants will also receive a PDF of several essays from Kelli and Susan's forthcoming manuscript book: Demystifying the Manuscript, as well as an extensive, curated list of book prizes and publishing opportunities. Our goal is to help you move closer to your goal in publishing your manuscript as well as creating community and helping each other on own unique poet journey.
There is no one "right" path to publication, our goal is to help you find the best way for you. We believe book creation is an art. We want to offer you offer you inspiration-as well as the essential details needed to help you find your way as you put together your own manuscript.
