Chapbook Festival

Come to the chapbook festival! I'll either be wearing a soup kettle on my head, or a lovely service representative's shop floor apron. In any case, I will be calm and professional to the point of impersonality, though my heart will be bursting from its ribcage in the hopes you will want to hang out with me.

Bring poems! The kind that really work! Get published in a rare limited edition!

Here's how: I'll read your poem aloud for you, which will constitute an edition of your work. Or do I mean audition?? Hmm. Poetry is often confusing. But I really need to beef up my authors list.


Monday May 3 &Tuesday May 4, 2010

The Festival celebrates the chapbook as a work of art and as a medium for alternative and emerging writers and publishers. Now in its second year, the festival features a two-day bookfair with chapbook publishers from around the country, workshops, marathon poetry readings, and a closing-night reading of prize-winning Chapbook Fellows.

Co-sponsored by The Office of Academic Affairs, The Center for the Humanities, The Graduate Center and MFA Programs in Creative Writing of the City University of New York, The Center for Book Arts, Poets House, Poetry Society of America, and Poets & Writers
