I offer specialised feedback for the beginner poet. This feedback will provide detailed analysis of each poem, using the poets own work as a tool for teaching the poetry basics. I also provide some insider information on the industry - how to find your way, building a network, and of course, the submission process.
Prices detailed below:
1 - 40 lines of poetry £10
41- 80 lines of poetry £20
81 - 120 lines of poetry £30
I can't offer feedback on haikus or children's poetry. Formal poetry will take longer to feedback on, and may incur a higher cost. I can't take any more than 120 lines of poetry at any one time. All payments will be via PayPal.
If this interests you, please fill out the contact form (below) letting me know how many lines you are looking to send me (titles and stanza breaks are not counted), if you are sending me formal poetry, and why you feel you are a beginner poet.
For the more experienced poet I offer a peer review service, priced at the same rate as my First Steps Feedback (see above).
With this service I aim to offer the experienced poet an honest and detailed review of the poetry sent to me, in which (unless requested) I will focus less on poetic technique and more on the poetry as a whole - how it makes me feel on various readings, where it soars or goes a bit flat, and crucially - if it works, something poets often struggle to see in their own work.
Pamphlet/collection manuscripts peer reviewed, price on enquiry.
JJ It is a fantastic opportunity for new poets like me to better understand the poetry industry and how it works as well as gain insight and understanding on our own work.
RM I learnt a lot about writing poetry and how to construct it and the importance of the right words to use. Maxine provided professional feedback and was encouraging in my writing.
AM I would recommend this programme because it gave my writing a fresh set of eyes. I was able to look at it from a critical angle, using Maxine's suggestions.
It helped me identify where my strengths and areas for development lie.
Please try my feedback services first. If you would then like to be mentored as the next step, we can discuss what would work best for you and decide on a price accordingly.
