Let's work together!
Individual Poem Critique
Line by line suggestions/feedback for up to five poems at a time.
Thirty Prompts in Thirty Days
For those brave souls who take on the thirty poems in thirty days, I will be your accountability coach, and send you a prompt a day to help you over the speed bumps that often occur.
Poetry Submissions Coaching
Submitting your work for others to accept or reject is not for the faint of heart. Confused about how to begin? What to put in your cover letter? Which poems to send, and to where?
I'll help you get your packets in ship shape, polish your cover letter, and get you on the road to publication.
After a thoughtful close read, I'll offer feedback on your manuscript at the line level, as well as provide some observations about themes and trends I notice in your work.
Creativity Coaching, Mentoring, Weekly Touch Bases & More
What do you and your Muse need most? What would best serve your poetic life and writing project where it's at right now? Would you benefit from a one-on-one discussion of a craft book to brush up on your skills and extend its reach with prompts? Do you just need someone to push you to keep going on a weekly basis, and to help you make sure that you find time for your muse? Need help expanding a current project in the works which has reached a poetic cul-de-sac?
Let's talk! <3
Sarah Ann Winn
I'm the founder of Poet Camp, and I'm a practicing poet, teacher and free range librarian living in Northern Virginia. My first book, Alma Almanac, won the Barrow Street Book prize in 2017. I'm the author of five chapbooks, and have been published in Kenyon Review Online, Massachusetts Review and Tupelo Quarterly, and many other journals online and in print.
I started Poet Camp to help others in their poetry journeys, and to build community, and this has taken on a new and delightful form during the pandemic in the form of classes, craft popups and Cozy Writing Retreats, as well as Jumpstarts offered online once a quarter. I hope you'll join us!
