KSP Supporting Poetry workshop logo

You’ve worked hard, those poems of yours deserve a wider audience. This workshop will give you a unique set of strategies for polishing your work and getting it published regardless of whether you are new or developing voice. Les’ programs are known for their constructive and friendly orientation.

Everyone gets in advance a strategy sheet on editing their work. Then, participants will bring multiple copies of 2 poems (maximum 30 lines each) to the workshop.

On the day of the workshop, you will work intensively through each participant’s poems building on the strategy sheets and experiencing a dynamic interplay of ideas/insights.

Should they so wish, participants will have a chance to have a piece published in the e-mag Australian Poetry Collaboration, which is widely read and archived by the National Library’s Pandora.

It is strictly limited to 12 attendees.

Bookings must be made by 26 April.
