The Greenville Poets

We'll Meet With You...

Members of the Greenville Poets are willing to meet with your students, conduct workshops, give manuscript critiques and readings, as well as discuss many of the practical aspects of writing and publishing.

Readings. We give readings individually and as a group, and welcome questions and discussion.

How do you publish a first book? Six of our members have published books of poetry, either through contests or through university presses. Each of them approached the publishing process differently and can help writers clarify their publishing goals. For example, how do you approach a university publisher, and how do you get "invited" to enter a closed contest?

Keeping a writers' group alive. How do you form a writers' group? Where do you find literary partners who are as interested as you are, and how do you keep that group alive? Do personalities matter, or should it be all business?

Roundtable critiques. Be our guest! Sit down at our table, and we will critique one of your poems, as if you were a member of our group.

Workshops. Small groups meet with one or two of our poets to critique their writing in a traditional workshop format.

Manuscript critiques. Manuscript critiques can be arranged. Please contact us by phone or through any of the email addresses listed.
