Distilling Wonder: The Poetry Chapbook

Distilling Wonder: The Poetry Chapbook

300.00

To craft a chapbook is to gather and distill quality ingredients into an immersive and intoxicating creation. With fewer pages than a full manuscript, the stakes are that much higher for individual pieces to be connected in some way: subject matter, theme, image, or tone.

How does a chapbook go from mere pages of poetry to a work of art? Building a single chapbook over four weeks, this course will serve up exercises for crafting a condensed, captivating batch of poems that add up to much more than the sum of their parts.

Designed for poets who have written enough material to begin crafting a chapbook and those who have already begun the process on their own.

Five weeks online: March 4—April 7
