Designed for poets preparing a pamphlet for possible publication, this report will offer constructive feedback on a group of up to twenty poems.
About this report
For writers with a group of around twenty poems (up to 5,000 words in total), this report will discuss your poetics, your style, and suggestions towards tightening the pamphlet as a whole, and will also provide a close reading of a selection of your poems, with detailed commentary. Your reader will be a published poet, with editorial experience, a deep knowledge of the industry and a passion for the craft of writing poetry.
Is this the right report for me?
You may be a more experienced poet, hoping to find a publisher for your first pamphlet. Or perhaps you're just looking for feedback on a larger group of poems than our Magazine Submission Review offers. We're very happy to help in either case – just let us know in your covering letter exactly where you are with these particular poems and your plans for them.Click here to view a sample report

Any additional information
If there's anything else you think the reader needs to know – any additional context or a particular area of your writing you're keen to receive advice on – include that too.
