About the Event

The goal of this class is to curate, polish, and publish a chapbook.

During this course, the student will learn how to compile a chapbook learning best practices for poem selection, poem order, and revision. Additional topics will include performing your work and a brief history of chapbooks. Class will include discussions of the week’s topic, a class review of the chapbook manuscript, one-on-one time with the instructor, and collaborative work with the class.

At the end of the course, Toho Publishing will take your manuscript, create a cover for your book, do the layout and design, publish it digitally and/or physically, and then we'll throw a publishing party for everyone.  You'll get 50% of any royalties.

Class is limited to 7 students.
