What to expect

  • You will be asked to send a few poems in advance to allow Katy to get to grips with them.
  • The surgery itself is a relaxed conversation to find the strong points in your poems and the points where they could be stronger.
  • Each session lasts 30 minutes. Please try not to overrun; there will be another poet waiting for his/her turn.
