Publicity material for this event says:

Editing and redrafting your own poems can be a tricky business; it’s easy to start thinking of first drafts as complete, inviolable, somehow final, particularly once they’ve been typed up on the computer and beautifully formatted. In this workshop we will be looking at questions of economy, of form, of clutter, and will work towards seeing at your poems with an ‘outside eye’, a sharp pencil, and a ruthless determination to kill, cut and relineate your darlings. Whether you bring new drafts ready for their first edit or old favourites you’re curious to put through their paces, we’ll be reaching for your poems’ best versions of themselves – with any luck they, and you, will come away invigorated.

A two-day workshop running 10:30am – 4:30pm on Saturday 17 & Sunday 18 March.
