Do you have trouble knowing when your work is "done"? Do you have a lot of poems you've finished that are sitting in a drawer? Bring 7-10 poems to class that you feel are close to being candidates for submission. We'll use our afternoon together to discuss elements of publishable work, workshop final revisions, create one or two submission sets, and briefly touch on best places to submit.

By the end of class, each student will have at least one submission ready to send out, and will leave with a new set of prompts for staying engaged with their work. Please obtain a copy of The Best American Poetry 2017 (Simon and Schuster) and read at least a few poems before class. Class is best suited to those who have 7-10 poems they are ready to revise and discuss.
