Derby Poetry Festival: Editing Your Poetry with Harry Slater

In this workshop, we’re going to look at some of the ways you can polish your poem once the first draft is done. From language to flow to just what it is you’re trying to say, we’ll take a deep dive into how you can take your writing – and re-writing – to the next level. Bring a piece you’d like to work on, and don’t worry, we won’t be hurling criticism around – this is a safe space to learn some new techniques and hopefully some new ways of looking at your writing.

Harry has an MA in Creative Writing and half a decade of experience in various forms of editing.

Tickets: £5

About Derby Poetry Festival

Often referred to as DPF, Derby Poetry Festival is a four-day poetry and literature festival held in the centre of Derby. We are dedicated to developing new writing talent in Derby and bringing excellent work to the city. DPF has just entered its fifth year, and 2023 is set to be bigger and better than ever.

We work with local, national and international talent to build a community of like-minded individuals to create a wonderful literary festival.

Derby Poetry Festival is funded by Arts Council England, Derby City Council & Derby Cathedral Quarter
