This is not your usual poetry workshop. Manuscript Bootcamp 2017 is proud to announce that it will be open for submissions of poetry manuscripts from 1 April 2017 to 14 May 2017, for a bootcamp scheduled on 28-30 Jul 2017.
At the Bootcamp, your work will be taken apart and put back together by established writers, editors, academics and critics. You will talk narrative, sequencing, theme, titling; anything that answers the question, “How can and why should these poems be a book?” Be prepared to give and take feedback of the highest quality in a challenging and collegial environment.
Our 2017 edition of Manuscript Bootcamp will also have its final shortlist of participants decided by an external panel of esteemed poets: Shirley Lim (US), Nicholas Wong (HK), and Alvin Pang (SG).
