Intermediate | Ready to create and publish a chapbook? A chapbook can be a site for a poet’s obsessions and their calling card. We’ll read and discuss a sampling of chapbooks, take turns workshopping small sets of linked poems, and compose themed chapbooks of 15-20 poems. We’ll identify lists of suitable publishers and contests. In addition, students will gain an overview of the history of the poetic chapbook, its evolution, and contemporary attributes and uses.
