Single poems should be no more than 2 pages. Choose "up to 3 poems" for longer single poems. No matter the number of poems, your "up to 3 poems" should be no longer than 6 pages. You may place multiple orders of single poems or "up to three poems" if you have more than 6 pages of poems but they do not constitute chapbook or full-length manuscript. Editing of individual poems includes:
  • Written feedback on your poems
  • Line-Editing
  • Advice and resources on submitting for publication          

Chapbook manuscripts should be no more than 40 pages in length, and full length collections should be no longer than 80 pages. If you have a manuscript that is longer than 80 pages, please contact us for rates. Editing of manuscripts includes:

  • Written feedback on individual poems
  • Line-Editing
  • Feedback on manuscript as a whole
  • Advice and resources on submitting for publication

For an additional $100/hour you can also schedule an online video consultation with your editor. During these sessions, here's what you can expect:

  • Editor shares a google document with line-edits, suggestions, feedback and critique prior to meeting
  • Discussion of tone, intention, and your goals with the work
  • Examples and resources for further discussion and investigation
  • Advice and resources on submitting for publication
  • Open to critiquing a video of your work you read aloud with feedback on your work as a performance

READY TO PLACE YOUR ORDER?

Go right ahead, and once you're done, please email info@poetrysocietyny.org with your order number, a copy of the poems or manuscript, and the answers any of the following questions if you think they will help us match you with the best editor for you! Someone from PSNY will be in touch within 72 hours to connect you with your editor. 

  • Who are some of your favorite writers?
  • Do you have any favorite poetry publishers? Feel free to list small presses, large publishing houses, imprints, magazines, journals, blogs, newsletters, or other online publications. 
  • How would you describe your experience with poetry? Have you studied it? Are you a seasoned performer? Have you been published? Do you teach? Has it been a secret hobby until now?
  • Is this your first time having your work edited? If so, what made you decide to seek an editor? If not, please describe any experience you've had in receiving feedback or critique on your writing, in school or elsewhere.
  • Do you have any specific goals for this editing session? Perhaps preparing a manuscript for publication, or polishing a poem for a loved one?
