Chapbook Making for young writers
Join us on November 18 from 2:30 to 5:00 pm for a chapbook-making and visual poetry workshop led by local author and publisher Kyle Flemmer. We'll explore various materials, learn a few different binding techniques, and get hands-on putting together souvenir chapbooks for each participant. Kyle will also deliver a crash course in visual poetry, which we will use to fill up our newly-made chapbooks! Everything you need for a fun-filled afternoon of arts and crafts will be provided, but if you have particular materials you'd like to work with (paper, fabric, ink, stickers, collage materials, etc.) feel free to bring them!
