From Inspiration to Publication: Editing for Poets

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Emma S. Clark Memorial Library
Community Room

Event Details

This workshop is for poets who would like to gain an insight into editing their own work, before submitting it to publishers and professional editors. We’ll examine the three stages of the editing process: the structural edit (considering the shape and development of the poem as a whole); the copyediting, or line edit (evaluating the contribution each line makes to overall cohesion, and spot issues with grammar); and the proof looking for typos, spelling, punctuation, and shape on the page). Everyone will bring an original poem for the workshop—“a final draft”—and we will work on creating a “finished” piece.
