Presented by Angst Gallery Director Leah Jackson and Clark County Poet Laureate Christopher Luna In honor of National Poetry Month.
We are currently enjoying a small press renaissance, with countless publishing options for emerging authors. From submitting to reputable chapbook publishers to creating handmade, locally printed, limited editions of your work, the world has never been more open to an author’s specific vision. But how best to organize and structure your chapbook? How to make it read cohesively? And what publishing path is the right fit?
Join award-winning poet and literary agent John Sibley Williams for this hands-on workshop exploring the ins-and-outs of organizing and publishing your chapbook. For writers of both poetry and prose, “Publishing your Chapbook” will guide you all the way from inspiration to publication.
John Sibley Williams serves as editor of The Inflectionist Review and works as both a literary agent and Marketing Director of Portland-based Inkwater Press. He is the editor of two Northwest literary anthologies and the author of nine poetry collections, including Disinheritance and Controlled Hallucinations.
