Do you have some drafts of poems that you would like to receive feedback on? Book in at our Poem Surgery and receive one-to-one mentoring with poet, tutor, and editor Suzannah Evans.

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.

In a pre-booked one-to-one session you will receive detailed feedback on 8 poems, including annotations on each poem and discussion from a writerly and editorial perspective.

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

Each individual Pamphlet 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 pamphlet publication.
• The opportunity to request feedback in advance of the surgery on any particular poems or elements of editing/collating a collection with which you are struggling.

There are just 15 slots available across 3 dates this summer.
