Consultations

An experienced teacher who has worked with high schoolers, undergraduates, graduate students, as well as nontraditional students, Jehanne offers private consulting services for poets at all stages of development.

  • For the beginning poet: a six-week course focusing on the topics of image, metaphor, sound effects, voice, and form. This course includes six Skype sessions, the study of published poems, and generative writing exercises that address specific elements of craft.
  • For the intermediate poet: hourly Skype sessions that focus on drafting and revision strategies. Generally, it is possible to cover two to three poems in an hour. Sessions may also include discussions of how to submit work to literary journals and other questions about the writing life.
  • For the advanced poet: chapbook and book-length manuscript consultations. The consultation package includes two Skype sessions, intensive analysis of the manuscript’s overall structure, line-editing of individual poems, and discussion of presses that might be receptive to the manuscript’s subject matter and aesthetic.

Please, contact Jehanne for more information about consultations and rates.
