Systems for collecting poems and editing

Anything goes really. No self promo posts. General discussion about poetry/gigs/the scene etc. and especially if you've got any questions.

Systems for collecting poems and editing

Post by benjaminsolah » Sun Jan 21, 2018 9:30 pm

My collection of my poems, as in the ones I wrote, is a bit all over the place. Split between Dropbox and Google Docs, there's first drafts there and untitled ones and ones I've been meaning to edit and ones I'll never read again. I probably need a better system for keeping them all to help with formulating sets for gigs, and to remember to edit pieces.

How do you organise your poetry? How do you remember which ones you need to edit?

I find that part tricky too. I try to keep notes in one place and I try to keep it up-to-date. This works for me, for the most part.
