Chapbook Editing II

In this six week workshop, we will work on editing short poetry and/or prose poetry manuscripts. Any new material for these manuscripts will be prompted (if necessary) in class but written and integrated outside class meetings. Inside the workshop we will focus on editing, shaping, arrangement, and bringing out a theme in your work with guided group feedback and individual consultation with the facilitator. Time to get that chapbook done and out into the world.
