Writing Help

Rebecca E Testimonial

The one-on-one and specific feedback on my material was super helpful, pointing out areas to celebrate (I love this idea) and areas that need more attention. Often, as a poet, you seek imagery or language and sometimes, trip along the way. The two poems I consulted with, were poems that have deep meaning for me, but I didn't know where to "grow." Also, having feedback in track changes and comments offers the opportunity to return to these poems and use this as a lesson for other work.

I profited greatly from...discussing poems with Aaron Berkowitz. A session or more with the editors at [the] JLJ can help poets clarify their unique voice and improve their accessibility to the readership they seek.
