How to Sequence a Prizewinning Poetry Manuscript

Part lecture and part workshop, this class gives you a hands-on approach to finding the best order for your manuscript to keep readers (and contest judges) hooked. We will discuss why editors care about the order of poems in a book, and how to turn your manuscript into a prizewinning collection. This class is open to writers at all stages, whether you have just a few poems, are halfway through a project, or have a fully polished manuscript.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
