Course Catalog

Assembling a Chapbook for Publication

Intermediate/Advanced | 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 with a series or larger project in mind. Next we’ll discuss two award-winning chapbooks (which you’re encouraged to read in advance); practice hands-on structuring, ordering, and titling exercises; and bring what you’ve learned to create a manuscript of 8–24 pages.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
