Assembling a Chapbook for Publication (ZOOM)

This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.

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.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
