Everything You Want to Know About Chapbooks, But Were Afraid to Ask

Here’s an event announcement from one of my favorite bookstores, Chop Suey Books, located in Richmond, Virginia:

Please join us on Sunday, January 20th from 1-5 at Chop Suey Books for a Chapbook Festival. Poet, teacher, and friend Liz Canfield has organized this event and has gathered a number of poets and fiction writers who will read from their chapbooks (a small, limited edition publication which is usually self-published or printed by a small press). This event seeks to celebrate independent publishing and to showcase authors who have published through this alternative process. A panel discussion will follow the reading and will include a conversation about how to get published, the benefits of working with small presses, DIY publishing, and how to start/run an independent press.

Authors will include Joshua Poteat, Allison Titus, Nathan Long, Susan Settlemyre Williams, Nan Byrne, Lee Capps, Dan Abergotti, and others.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
