How Do You Know When a Poem is Ready For Publication?

Workshop Leader: Elaine Woo

Description: This workshop is about taking a raw poem through a revising process and making it acceptable for publication. Whether you want to revise for revision’s sake and cherish your work for yourself or want to share them or are trying to establish a publication track record by submitting them to literary journals or working towards developing your own poetry manuscript, discover new ways for reaching that goal." If you’ve got one or two poems you are having difficulty revising, bring them along and we’ll have some fun working on them. This workshop is also for writers who have not written poetry before but would like to have a better understand of the process required.

Elaine Woo is the author of the poetry collection, Cycling with the Dragon. A graduate of the University of British Columbia's creative writing program, she has conducted writing workshops in community settings and homeless shelters in the DTES, the West End, and North Vancouver. She is the recipient of an 2014 Empowered Poet award from World Poetry. Elaine is a contributor to Shy: An Anthology, a winner of a silver medal IPPY (independent Book Publishers award) in 2014. Her art song collaboration with composer Daniel Marshall won a Boston Metro Opera festival prize in 2013. A contributor to V6A: Writing from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, the book was a finalist for the City of Vancouver Book award in 2012.
