Readying Your Chapbook

You already have an advanced understanding of poetry, and you have written and edited a group (any size) of poems you’re proud of. Now you’ve decided you want to complete, assemble, and submit a chapbook! We’ll write two additional poems and go over chapbook dos and don’ts, collectively workshop your chapbook poems in a supportive environment, and focus on revising. Examples will be made of contemporary chapbook authors. We’ll prepare chapbooks for submitting to chapbook presses and then send them off.
