Overview of the workshop:

This workshop will take the student from writing and rewriting his or her work all the way through the submission process. What editors look for will also be covered.

Ten Monday Workshops from 6 pm to 8 pm, beginning on January 27th through each Monday and ending on the 7th of April. The workshop will not meet the Monday of Spring Recess (March 10th).

This workshop period will give students enough time to prepare poetry for submission, send out queries to the selected periodicals or journals they wish to submit to, receive their guidelines, prepare materials to guideline specifications, and submit their work to the chosen publications.

Colangelo will be available through e-mail for any inquiries or help between meetings.

Students interested should submit 5 poems each in advance of the first meeting.
