The Art of the Chapbook
Chapbooks are increasingly popular in the indie lit world as a vehicle for getting published, and a calling card for many respected poets and writers that gets their work noticed by other presses. In this course, we will develop manuscripts for publication in chapbook form that are “market ready.” Even if you feel you don’t have enough material for a full chap collection, we’ve got you covered with both generative and editorial writing prompts to bring a special manuscript together.
The workshop will also go over the various options for publication, distribution, and the basic do’s and don’ts of chapbook submissions. By the time the workshop concludes, you will be in possession of a chapbook-length manuscript of poetry or prose ready to shop around to small presses, take to the print shop or to POD distributors.
