For many poets, the chapbook is the segue into book publishing.  Shorter than a full-length poetry manuscript, the chapbook can serve as an apprenticeship in learning how to create the final poem of a collection—the collection itself. But beyond its page count, what exactly is a chapbook and how does one go about creating a chapbook?  There are two proven routes to creating a chapbook and in this hands-on workshop, we will explore both possibilities.  Whether you are a poet with a handful of poems to work with, or not, you will leave this workshop with the seeds of a new chapbook.
