"I’ve always found that Toho Publishing brings such an amazing professional and personal effort to all that it does. The Toho Publishing Chapbook Series writing course I took part in is a perfect example.  With the patient guidance of course instructor Sean Hanrahan and the insight of my fellow student authors, I was able to bring my long-dreamed-of first chapbook Bury Me Here to life. It's an experience I can’t recommend enough!
—Philip Dykhouse, author of Bury Me Here

"The ideal way to polish and direct your writing with a small group. It worked for me and having the book in hand is a nice thrill."—Caroline Furr, Foreigner's Conception, Uneven Terrain

"The Toho Chapbook Series was one of my favorite and most rewarding writing courses I’ve ever participated in! Sean Hanrahan is attentive and resourceful as an instructor and the lessons are collaborative and engaging. I’m so pleased with the final product, my debut chapbook Palm Lines—an achievement I’ll cherish and celebrate for the rest of my life." 
—Jonathan Koven, author of Palm Lines

"The Toho Publishing chapbook course is enlightening and enriching. Career elevating for writers of any caliber."
—Elisha Gibson, Fault/Freedom

"Take this class. It took my collection of poem drafts to a published chapbook that I absolutely love. You can't understate the value of doing this within the Toho Publishing community—you'll take the class with a group of writers that will encourage you to succeed, and you're in a lineage of chapbook writers who want to see you thrive. This class has been a gift that keeps on giving."
—Sam Fischer, Short Cycles
