TESTIMONIALS 

  • “Savannah’s editing was very thorough, thoughtful, and informative. I felt I learned a lot from her comments on my poem. I really benefitted from her experience.”
  • “I really enjoyed the feedback from Savannah and I found it both challenging and rewarding. She was able to go to both a macro and micro level, interrogating word choice, imagery and form. She was also able to work on the level of the line, the poem and the group of poems which is so helpful when you’re trying to develop a style and voice. She was brilliant at being both uplifting and celebrating the parts of the poem that work well, as well as pushing and driving for the poem to improve. I was also very grateful that she gave me a lot of ideas about what to take away and keep thinking about (eg enjambment, word choice). She was able to have a conversation with me and my work that continued beyond the email exchange.  It was clear that she had worked hard to understand what I was writing, where I was coming from and what might work well in future – and that was deeply pleasing for me as a poet. I would definitely recommend her for all levels of poetry: beginner, intermediate and advanced.” – SK Grout
