Making Your Manuscript: An Online Conference for Advanced Poets with Tupelo Press
NEW SUMMER DATES: August 14-17 & September 11-14, 2020
Tupelo's online conference model offers an intimate group of poets the chance to meet with faculty in small groups and build a writing community with one another. Your faculty are three of the most experienced editors, mentors, poets, publishers, and spirit guides in the country:
- Jeffrey Levine, Publisher & Artistic Director of Tupelo Press
- Kristina Marie Darling, Editor-in-Chief of Tupelo Press & Tupelo Quarterly
- Veronica Golos, Editor of 3:A Taos Press.
Together, we will generate real-time, immediately applicable feedback on your manuscript, including comments on individual poems and substantive guidance toward final revision, poem ordering, and manuscript titling. You will be guided through both the art and craft of making your manuscript not just cohere, but sing.
"The elegance of the design of the conference layers conversation and in-depth analysis of individual poems. The structure of meetings enables a dozen serious and distinguished writers and teachers of writing from across the US to meet over four days with two editors/publishers whose fingers are on the pulse of literature in our day. From their vantage as working poets themselves, Jeffrey's and Kristina's commitment to supporting creative writing has led them to give of their own energies and time and resources to hundreds of writers in daily devotion and practice. And now, their full attention is close-reading our work."
