Do you have an in-progress collection of poems that could use an expert eye? If so, we’ve got four talented poets, all of whom have a great deal of experience as writing teachers, who are ready to help.
Manuscripts may be up to 75 pages in length and should be formatted in 12 point font. The consulting fee is $250. The deadline to submit work for this consultation program is April 30, 2017. Our poets will respond with their critiques by May 31.
Read on to learn more about David Rigsbee. If you might be interested in working with TJ Beitelman, Elizabeth J Colen, Bettina Judd, or David Rigsbee, click on the “Consultations” button at the top of this page and make your selection from the dropdown menu.
Space in this program is limited, so be sure to submit your manuscript soon!
