So You Have This Pile of Poems

So You Have This Pile of Poems

Elliott batTzedek, MFA

Do you have what you're pretty sure is either a chapbook or full-length poetry manuscript?  In this 2 hour hands-on workshop, we'll talk about your next steps, including:

  • deciding if what you have is a manuscript
  • how to use free and paid online databases to search for publishers
  • how to prepare your work for submission
  • how to avoid wasting money on unnecessary submission fees


Advanced registration is required. The cost is $20.


Besides organzing events at Big Blue Marble, Elliott is a poet and translator, with one chapbook publlished and another manuscript looking for a home.
