 Self-Publishing Poetry Advice Clinic Plus Open Mic  
Orna's Open Mic is back, and in response to your feedback, with an emphasis on advice on self-publishing poetry.

Next Tuesday 14th May at 8pm BST (3pm EST, 12.30am Wed 15th IST, 5am Wed 15th AEST), Orna will be running this monthly online event "Self Publishing Poetry Advice Clinic Plus Open Mic” on Facebook Live.

Are you a poet who would like to reach a wider audience for your work? Do you want to learn how to publish and sell your poetry books? Then this event is for you — and the readers who will love to hear your work.

It's a warm and welcoming space for poets of all kinds, at every stage of development, and for everyone who loves the spoken and written word.

Featured Guest:
Orna's featured guest this month will be Helen Eastman, Director of Live Canon, and they'll be talking about the wisdom of publishing pamphlets as well as full books—something Orna always does herself.
