Chapbook Class - Seattle Area

If you're in the Seattle area, here's an EXCELLENT chapbook class. I took this same class in 2002 and it really helped me improve my chapbook manuscript (in fact, the revised chapbook was published the next year.)

Please feel free to forward this information to anyone you think would be interested.

Here's the details--

Chapbooks: Northwest Explosion

Become chapbook savvy, and apply these insights to your own poems. We will consider the Northwest’s wealth of chapbooks. Here, they evolved into many forms from handmade art books to press-run contest prizes to self-published works to online versions. Chapbook’s content and design serve each other in a physical form achieved through layout, paper, printing method, binding, folding and other book-art features. For many poets, publishing chapbooks serves as the step from publishing single poems to the step before producing a full volume. By considering chapbooks, writers can use lessons learned as a means of ordering, deepening and expanding their own work.
