The Ten-Page Poetry Edit
Powerful yet cost effective: ten pages easily reveal weaknesses in music and rhythm, in figurative language, in voice,
in grammar, punctuation, diction and
syntax. Use these notes to self-edit the rest of your manuscript.
· Send ten pages of poetry — a page defined as
one poem, or 30 lines, if the poem is longer than one page.
· Give me ten days after receiving your package.
I will give the poems a mindful reading and return them marked
also write 500-700 words detailing where craft is working particularly
well for you
it is not working so well.
