Some of the services we offer: https://www.callofthepage.org/learning/
Whether you want to get a magazine submission just right, or suggestions on a poem or group of poems for a competition, we can help.
Alan is both a former editor of three haikai genre magazines, and a former regular competition judge.
And if you have a deadline that is right around the corner, we can help, with over 25 years experience.
The feedback is also useful if you want to spend a longer amount of time getting a particularly important submission just right, one that may be groundbreaking, where you have pushed yourself to a new level.
Sometimes we all need a Manuscript Doctor or an "Outside Editor"
We can also give advice, feedback, and wide-ranging suggestions on a collection you are putting together, whether haiku, or tanka, or haibun, or tanka stories (aka tanka prose). Or if you are considering combining those genres this means you get that extra support. Your collection is as important to us as it is to you.
This is also ideal if you can't wait until the next Call of the Page intermediate/improver group course comes around for your particular genre, as they can sell out quickly.
This one to one feedback offer may suit you in between our courses or as a regular litmus test to ensure you are developing a formidable body of work over the year.
