“Whether you’re submitting poems to journals or putting them together for a book,” says instructor Lisa Gluskin Stonestreet, “learning how to order and present your work can give you a deeper understanding of how that work is received – and of what sets your poems apart."

Bring 10 poems to work with in this two-session class. We’ll use play, exercise, and discussion to discover relationships between and among poems and develop frameworks for thinking about sequence and structure through the eye of the reader. We’ll also look at what the arc of a series or book can tell us about individual poems, and explore techniques for writing with a larger project in mind. Then we’ll turn our attention outward. Are you ready to send out your work – and where should you send it? What tools and practices can help?

You’ll leave with an ordered packet of five poems to send to the journal of your choice, and a knowledge of how to submit effectively.
