Friday, March 25, 11:30 AM – 12:45 PM—SASFest Master Class

Everything you ever wanted to know about publishing a chapbook, and then some! So you have some poems or several pieces of creative nonfiction? Maybe a few short-short stories? Not quite enough material to submit for publication as a full length book? Starting from scratch, how can your most polished work (poems, short fiction, or creative nonfiction) become a chapbook? In this workshop, we will describe what a chapbook is, explain how to put one together, discuss the most LGBTQ-friendly chapbook publishers, and explore methods of promoting your chapbook once it is published. There will be plenty of time for Q & A. The workshop facilitators are experienced in writing, editing, reviewing, and publishing chapbooks. Our goal is to help you step-by-step to get your chapbook out into the world.

Panelists include: Allison Blevins, Cathleen Chitwood, Kim Roberts, and Julie Marie Wade.

Facilitator: Gregg Shapiro.
