Workshop Description

This workshop is for poets who are looking to move their manuscript writing process forward in a short period of time. This workshop is designed to get you writing toward completion of a manuscript and give you a new perspective on the quickly changing publishing environment for poets. The workshop will cover strategies for structuring a poetry manuscript and will provide feedback on new work created during the workshop.

With sixteen workshop hours, and take home assignments, participants are expected to create a portfolio of over twenty new pages of poetry. The workshop offers a small-class environment, as well as a close edit of ten new pages in an editing session with the workshop leader.

Participants will complete the workshop with the groundwork laid for a strong poetry manuscript and a better understanding of how you might market a finished manuscript.

The Hagios Sessions are a series of workshops presented by Hagios Press and will focus on creating new work while also discussing the current mechanics of publication and the publishing industry.
