Poetry Manuscript Consultations (Winter 2023)

I prioritize Filipina/x poets for manuscript consultation because too many have told me they never had Pinay creative writing teachers or professors, and very few, if any Filipina/x colleagues to read and provide feedback on their works in progress. This can be unhelpful and unproductive/counterproductive, especially when these works attempt to centralize the complexities of culture, language, migration, diaspora, and history, with family and community as primary addressees.

I am open to APIA and BIPOC poets as well, for much of the same reason.

I will read your manuscript, and provide written feedback on individual poems, as well as the whole body and its cohesiveness. I will also provide reading recommendations that could be helpful for your poetic project. We will meet via Google Meet for a one-hour conversation, where you can ask me questions about my feedback, and other things poetry-related.

Cost:

  • $300 (chapbook 24 to 36 pages of poems)
  • $500 (full length 48 to 64 pages of poems)

Payment accepted via Venmo (bjanepr) or Zelle (bjanepr at gmail dot com). After registration, you will receive link/online meeting information via email. Please check your spam folders!
