Working Words: Punctuation & Editing – Sat 18th May

Working Words: Punctuation & Editing



This Inscribe Masterclass, Working Words is all about getting close to the poem, story or novel, and shifting the perspective from the words in your head to the words you hope some reader will decode as closely as possible (which is never that close) to the way you intended. It is a session about sounds and rhythms – and how punctuation plays a vital role in how a reader “hears” as well as sees the words on the page. The session looks practically at punctuation not as a set of fixed rules – though there are some – but as a set of choices, conventions and strategies concerning the way, for instance, that speech can be handled in written texts.


It’s a session with the wider objectives of exploring what an editor tries to do – and an encouragement to self-editing habits. It’s about the role of the editor as the invisible and properly disappearing intermediary between writer and reader – the editor as the writer’s first and most attentive reader whose focus is both to help the poem, story or novel truly represent what the writer hopes it means, and to focus on that point when the reader brings all her/his expectations, experiences, prejudices to the naked text on the page. The session is both about strategies – and trusting the reader.


Tutor:Jeremy Poynting is the founding and managing editor of Peepal Tree Press, which over twenty-five years, has become the largest publisher of new Caribbean writing, reviver of classic texts, and publisher of new Black British writers. He is a graduate of the University of Leeds, completing a PhD on literature and cultural pluralism in the Caribbean in 1985. Before devoting himself to publishing full-time, he worked in further education for many years.
