The Art of The Chapbook
LitSpace Literary Arts Institute at Morean Arts Center
Saint Petersburg, FL
Share this event:

The chapbook is an object of smallness and brevity. These small booklets, often containing poetry or fiction, embrace DIY aesthetics and celebrate the hand-made book as an object. In this class we will learn the history behind these tiny books and discuss how they thematically resonate in comparison to full-length books. Students will learn strategies to produce chapbooks, via the instructors demos, and also learn about small presses the specialize in publishing these special books. Instructor JD Scott will be bringing in an extensive chapbook collection from his personal library for hands-on brainstorming and chat with students on how they can bring their suite of poems or novelette to life in chapbook form.

About the Instructor:
JD Scott is a writer, editor, and educator. Recent and forthcoming publications include Best American Experimental Writing, Best New Poets, Denver Quarterly, Prairie Schooner, Salt Hill, Sonora Review, The Tampa Review, Spoon River Poetry Review, and elsewhere.
