Putting together a poetry collection can seem like a mystery. In this class we’ll learn how to put the best poems in the best order for publication. We’ll go over how to pick a title, overarching themes, standard formatting guidelines and variations of formatting now allowed through mixed media. We’ll discuss poetic inspiration and the role of the muse, and how poems speak to each other and work together in a manuscript. Different publishing options will be addressed. Students should bring at the minimum 10 poems at the most 80.
