Draft, Edit, Draft

Develop your drafting practice and editorial eye with Ahren Warner

How, why and when to edit. When is editing actually drafting? How, why and should one move from editing to drafting? How does line editing and editing towards magazine or book publication differ? Over the course of this weekend, we will work through a series of discussions, exercises and challenges designed to address all of these questions and to move towards a process of editing and drafting that produces poems – and collections of poems – fit for publication.

A two-day workshop running 10:30 – 16:30 on Saturday 6th May and Sunday 7th May.

More information about how all our face-to-face courses work can be found on the Face-to-Face courses page.
