FREE | Speak the Word: online poetry editing workshop

August 13, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT

Speak the Word- online poetry editing workshopSpeak the Word- online poetry editing workshop

An online poetry editing workshop for peer encouragement, feedback and critique

About this event


What this means is that we bring a poem and our request (encouragement, validation, critique – for example) to the group and we support each other in improving our craft.

We’re building a close, welcoming and supportive community with each other – wherever we’re at with our poetry – to learn together about editing and how to give feedback.

You don’t need to be an expert. Nobody needs to feel ill-prepared, we figure out out together!

Please bring along one piece of writing that you are working on (poetry/prose). Please also have it typed up, because we will ask you to share your screen.

We will have approximately 15 minutes to discuss each person’s work.

Event time: 6–7.30pm (GMT/UTC)

Duration: 90 minutes

Accessibility: Captioning available, let us know if you have any other accessibility needs.

Queer & trans-affirming.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
