In this two-hour chapbook-making workshop, you’ll create new poetry through a number of prompts, look at various editing strategies for refining your work and then conclude by making your very own chapbook from a single piece of paper. What you’ll need to bring are some handy-dandy writing implements (pen and paper), a heart ready to race in wonder, and hands open to trying out new ways of making small books
