Writing Publisher-Ready Poetry with Poets James Morehead & Morgan Liphart
Free virtual event with poets James Morehead (Poet Laureate – Dublin, CA) and Morgan Liphart (Poet & Author)

About this event

Learn how to write poetry that is publisher-ready in this Instagram Live conversation with James Morehead (Poet Laureate – Dublin, California and author of canvas and portraits of red and gray) and Morgan Liphart (poet and author of Barefoot & Running). James and Morgan have successfully placed their poetry in multiple publications and will discuss what they’ve learned on the journey to becoming published poets. Bring your questions for James and Morgan in this free Instagram Live follow-up to their successful IG Live Publishing Poetry!

James and Morgan will discuss:

  • Getting started – prompts, memories, and battling writer’s block
  • Playing with poetic forms, rhythm, and visualization
  • When is a poem done (aka revising and editing)
  • The critical role of feedback
  • Reciting what you’ve written
  • Submitting your poem for publication

Morgan’s work has appeared in anthologies and journals across the United States and England, such as the University of Oxford’s Literary Imagination, Chicken Soup for the Soul, and Third Wednesday. When she’s not writing, she enjoys her career as an attorney and adventuring in the mountains surrounding her home in Denver, Colorado.

James is Poet Laureate of Dublin, California, author of canvas and portraits of red and gray, and he hosts the Viewless Wings Poetry Podcast. James’ poem tethered was transformed into an award-winning hand drawn animated short film, “gallery” was set to music for baritone and piano, and his poems have appeared in Beyond Words Magazine, Wingless Dreamer, Prometheus Dreaming and Prompt Press.

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.

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.
