Poetry Editing Tips
You are probably writing a poem or book right now. First and foremost, when you’re done writing take a break and step away from it. Look at it later with fresh eyes. Save the older draft if you want to go back to it. Here are some editing tips.
Read your poem aloud.
Read it without the first line. Read it without the first stanza.
Read your poem without the line or stanza you feel unsure about.
Read your poem backwards.
Last but not least, get a second/unbiased opinion. Do you want to work with me? Check out my poetry services page and fill out the form.
