The Poets Circle @ Poet to Poet
a private community for poets
Meets: Twice monthly / virtual
Open to all poets curious about poetic process and developing a book.
Join The Poets Circle for twice monthly conversations on the nuts and bolts of poetry-book development and the big questions that background our process, such as: How do we develop poetic voice? Is a thematic approach to writing helpful or harmful? How much should we consider audience when we write? Plus, live Q&As with guest authors.
Complete Manuscript Course @ Poet to Poet
Meets: 3 months
Starting January 2023
Build focus and confidence in the process of developing a stand-out poetry manuscript. Designed for poets ready to assemble collections, this 3-month course meets twice monthly for interactive sessions* that explore key strategies for book development. We’ll learn from contemporary examples and apply practical insights to our own work, including:
- Unifying principles (voice & themes)
- Organizing and assembling your collection (book structure, sections, and poem order)
- Preparing your manuscript for submission (formatting, bios/cover letters, and selecting publishers) (2 classes)

Over the six weeks, you’ll have multiple opportunities to present poems for focused feedback that will help you actualize the potential already present in your work. We’ll discuss how a variety of contemporary poets approach poem development and explore ways to personalize your own revision process—from considerations of craft to habits that help you sustain poetic practice.
