Creating and Publishing your Chapbook abstract
We are currently enjoying a small press renaissance, with countless publishing options for emerging authors. From contests to reputable publishers to self-publishers to handmade, locally printed, limited editions of your work, the world has never been more open to an author’s specific vision. Join award-winning poet and literary agent John Sibley Williams for this hands-on workshop exploring the ins and outs of organizing and publishing your chapbook (or full-length book). Topics include: finding the best title, structuring for thematic coherence, researching and pitching to publishers, submitting to magazines, and considering copyright issues. For writers of both poetry and prose, “Creating and Publishing your Chapbook” will guide you all the way from inspiration to publication.
