As Good As It Gets
with Moyra Donaldson
North Down Museum 6–9pm
This workshop will focus on the skill of editing your own poetry, and offer helpful and practical suggestions as to how best to ensure that your poem is ready for publication. What are the questions you can ask yourself? How do you know when a poem is finished?
The second half of the workshop will look at applying these skills to individual poems. Please send one example of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org by 20 September.
