The Art of The Chapbook
Chapbooks are an art and a craft. The format is increasingly popular in the indie lit world and a calling card for many respected poets. In this course, we will develop manuscripts for publication in chapbook form that are “market ready.” Even if you feel you haven’t yet generated enough material to put a chap collection together, we’ve got you covered.
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. We will also cover strategies for achieving publication.
