Creating Chapbooks Workshop (Click here to read more.)
Chapbooks are a legitimate form of publication. Whether you intend to print and assemble your own chapbook or prepare a manuscript for a commercial printer, I invite you to learn from my own experience in producing eight different chapbooks – from the regular 8 ½” X 5 ½” B & W to the 10” X 8” glossy illustrated children’s book, to an affordable 5” X 4” coil-bound booklet to get the best deal from a printer company.
In this hands-on workshop you will discover how to plan your pages, format left facing and right facing pages and insert colour illustrations, photographs and promotional material. You will also discover how to obtain an ISBN number and sales barcode.
Learn how to produce an attractive booklet of your own poetry; “Grandma’s War”; “My Years With the R.C.A.F.”; “The Feeding and Training of a Husband”; “Adventures in Acrylics”; “Mexico on a Shoestring”; – that publication you’ve always dreaded as too momentous a task.
This workshop will provide you with a mock-up of your own chapbook, ready to go to work with computer, printer, paper-cutter and stapler.
