Timing: Flexible

Price: $2,000

Type/Length of Manuscript: Poetry 40-55 pp

Form of Response: I write extensively by hand on the poems, making detailed comments from beginning to end. I go through each poem twice, at different times, so I come at the second reading fresh. I will use two different colors of ink to indicate the different times I worked on the poems. I will write a short, more general letter at the end. I would be happy to talk to the poet for an hour or so on the phone after he or she has received the MS in order to answer questions, etc.  I will need a hard copy of the MS.
