Bray Literary Festival - 27-29 September 2019

So You Think Your Poem is Ready to Publish? - sun 29 september

How do you know when a poem is ready to go out into the world? Join poet Angela T. Carr to explore the editing and submission process, including:

  • what editors and competition judges are looking for;

  • essential qualities to make your poems sing, and

  • a checklist of practical steps to hit the mark when your poems land in an editor or judge’s inbox.

Suitable for emerging writers sending work to journals and/or competitions, who want to improve their success rate. Each writer will have the opportunity to submit a poem beforehand and will receive group feedback during the session.

Praise for Angela as a creative writing facilitator:

Angela is a talented writer with the generosity and ability to nurture, encourage and facilitate other writers at varying stages of their writing careers. The challenge is a heartening environment for fostering creative thinking. Place your seedling poems in this cloche, some will grow and thrive... this is the ecosystem that will give them at the very least a warm and nourishing start.
— R. Bugler
I really have hankered to write for so long - and this challenge was the most precious gift in that it has empowered me to write - instilled a habit that I will never give up... Angela shares her wisdom and experience so freely and with such generosity that I feel I have to honour that by keeping my side of the bargain and write, write, write.
— R. Greene
