This consultation is suitable for poets of any level of experience from beginners to national award-winners. You will email Annie up to six poems which she will use as the basis for a one-half-hour intensive discussion of your poetry.
Depending on your desires for the session and the nature of your work, Annie may offer you her sense of your poetry’s literary context, explore tendencies and points of growth, and map your themes, imagery, and rhythmic vocabulary. She may also scan the meters of your poems as desired, share with you a map of their formal dynamics, and discuss how this information can help you attain your goals and empower your poetic trajectory.
Annie will conclude by answering any questions you have and will be happy to recommend readings and directions to move in. She will record the Musing on request and provide you with an mp3 recording for further study.
