Michael Schmidt is the Editorial Director and Publisher at Carcanet Press and General Editor of PN Review. His latest collection of poetry is Talking to Stanley on the Telephone (Smith|Doorstop). His Selected Poems (Smith|Doorstop) was a PBS Special Commendation. He has written Lives of the Poets, The Ancient Poets and The Novel: a Biography, and he has produced notable canonical and introductory anthologies.

Michael will bring his 50 years of editorial and publishing experience to this session. He will give a window into the world of poetry publishing and offer insight to those hoping to get published.

Join us from the comfort of your sofa and listen to writers share their work, the stories behind their work, and invaluable writing advice directly from their desk (or maybe the kitchen table). And the best part? At the end, you get to ask them questions about their words, pick their brains on craft, and learn more about the business of writing. This session will be delivered via Zoom webinar, so you can take the session at your own pace, without the pressure of having your video or camera on. Sessions are also recorded so if you are unable to attend live, you will have access to the recording for a month afterwards.

I feel much more confident about short stories now! In such a short time I feel I was given such a great overview and the reader/tutor was so generous with their feedback and knowledge.

Very lovely. It had an intimate feeling despite it being a Zoom event and all of us being in different places.
