The Ten-Page Poetry Edit
Poets keep asking for feedback on poetry manuscripts. This is what we came up with:
· Send ten pages of poetry — a page defined as
one poem, or 30 lines, if the poem is longer than one page.
· Give us ten days after receiving your package.
An editor will give the poems a mindful reading
and return them marked with suggestions.
also write 500-700 words detailing where craft is working particularly
well for you
it is not working so well.
She will tuck in two
gifts: a tiny chapbook, the tongue-in-cheek "Why Poems Get Rejected," and
a beautiful poetry
by a Leaf Press author.
... depends upon what is left on the shelf when your request arrives.)
