Poetry editor and mentor Saradha will guide you through 30 editing tools and writing strategies to present your best poems in the best order and increase your chances of making the shortlist. You’ll be guided towards selecting poems that linger and discover sequencing techniques to seduce your reader, and learn how to identify your signature poem and enhance your poetic style.
