Our poem surgery is perfect for anyone with several poem drafts who is looking to enter a competition, send work to magazines, or build their new poems into a short collection.

You will receive detailed feedback on 7 poems (no more than 280 lines) including annotations on each poem and discussion of the wider themes of the work from an editorial perspective. There will also be time for more general advice on publication or other questions you might have.

Each poem surgery will last for up to an hour, and Suzannah will read your poems and prepare feedback and annotations in advance of your meeting.

Each individual poem surgery will include:

Detailed poem-by-poem feedback in the form of annotations on each poem.
Discussion of individual poems during the meeting
analysis of the themes for a possible short collection
Tips on how to work your poems into a short collection
General advice on publication, submitting to magazines or pursuing other opportunities

Sessions can be conducted via Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, Google Hangouts or the telephone!

Please send your poems to office@poetrybusiness.co.uk one week before your appointment, with a note on any particular areas where you want feedback.
