Jacinta Le Plastrier, Jeanine Leane, and Terri-ann White
Join us for an evening dedicated to poetry publishing. Poetry is often overlooked in industry discussions, but poets and their publishers have clear and distinct needs, challenges, and opportunities. Take this opportunity to ask questions of our three panellists about all aspects of poetry publishing, from pitching, distribution, marketing, tips, and trends.

This evening will be run as a Q&A session and participants will be invited to submit their questions before and during the seminar.

This workshop will take place online. Detailed information for participation will be provided.
