Poetry Lab

Fees, which are invoiced and paid upfront, are $80 per hour for Australian Poetry subscribers and $110 for non-subscribers. You can choose to book as many hours as you wish, and these can also be broken up over a period of time.

Poetry Lab is AP’s poetry assessment service program which matches poet-mentees with mentors. You can meet face to face, via telephone, email or Skype, as suits. Claire Gaskin and Andy Jackson are two mentors but if a mentee wishes for a particular mentor, or in terms of inclusivity and identity, this is also a commitment for AP. The usual process is for a poet-mentee to book a first session and send a number of poems for feedback and assessment. Full manuscripts can also be assessed, requiring longer times of mentoring, however.
