Assembling a Chapbook for Publication
In this workshop, you'll put together a chapbook manuscript to submit to publishers or self-publish. We'll explore structural and stylistic possibilities, how chapbooks differ from full-length collections, and techniques for writing poems with a larger project in mind. We'll discuss two award-winning chapbooks (which you’re encouraged to read in advance); practice hands-on structuring, ordering, and titling; and bring what you’ve learned together to create a manuscript of 8–24 pages.
