You’ve done it! You’ve written and redrafted a number of poems in the safety of your own home. But really, you’re only just beginning. What happens next? How do you get your poems out in to the world? And when you’ve got enough poems for a collection, how do you go about shaping it for publication? Become your own best editor with the guidance of two poet-editors expert at giving and receiving criticism. After you make a booking, you are invited to share three poems with the tutors so they are familiar with your work before the course starts. The three poems should be no more than 40 lines each, sent to totleighbarton@arvon.org by 19 August 2019.
