Enrolling in a workshop or joining a critique group can be a great way for poets to get feedback on their work, however not everyone has access to an in-person class or the desire to enroll in a formal writing program. Fortunately, individual feedback can also be highly valuable. At Copper Lantern Studio, we love working with poets. Kit holds an MFA in creative writing with a poetry focus from Syracuse University and regularly edits and publishes poetry as a Senior Editor at Black Lawrence Press. She is happy to bring her background in writing, teaching, and publishing poetry to her work at Copper Lantern Studio.

To inquire about any of our services for poets, please fill out the brief form via the "Get Started" button below, and you'll be on your way! We'll be back in touch with instructions for submitting your work soon, usually within 2 business days.

Critiques of Individual Poems or Small Groups of Poems

(From $15 - $50 depending on length, normally 1-6 pages)

Your critique will combine line-level editorial suggestions with overall revision strategies, often centered around questions that the poet can consider to work toward a successful revision.

Manuscript Critiques (Chapbook or Full-Length)

(From $175 - $300 depending on length)

Your critique will combine big picture revision strategies, including suggestions for sequencing and organizing, with line-level editorial suggestions. We can also provide help with considering a strategy for submission to contests and open reading periods, if that is among your goals for the manuscript.

Application Sample Critiques

($95 for a 10-12 page sample)

Applying to an MFA or MA program for poetry? For application sample critiques, we'll first help poets select and order their strongest work from an initial batch of 20 poems. We'll then line edit and help you fine tune the final 10-12 page sample.
