Award-winning writer Alice Shapiro embarked on an adventure: to discover how collaborative editing might alter her manuscript. After assembling an editorial board, the publisher sent the poems to the board for critique and then posted the poems and the critiques online for reader feedback. Alice then took the critique and the reader comments and revisited each poem, reserving the author's right to emend the work by her own decision. This book presents the final version of the collection along with an appendix of each original poem, the editorial board critiques, and the reader comments. The work can be read solely as a collection of final poems, taught as a poetry study in revision, or experienced cumulatively as a unique look at craft and process. It is a one-of-a-kind collaboration meant for readers, writers, and anyone interested in the art of creativity.
