Build-a-Book (for poets)

This is going to be a GREAT event, I can already tell. In collaboration with the Edmonton Poetry Festival, we are putting on a practical chapbook-making soiree for poets in the MakerSpace at the Stanley A. Milner library.

Build-A-Book (for poets)

Description:
Have you ever thought of compiling some of your poems into a chapbook? Learn how with fellow poets at a practical book-making course in the Edmonton Public Library’s Makerspace. In this free, collaborative seminar, participants will learn how to self-publish their work using the EPL’s state-of-the-art Espresso Book Machine. Watch the book-making process first-hand during the session as we publish a slim anthology of participants’ poems. Participants will also have a chance to read some of their work.

Registration required. Submit your poem for inclusion in our anthology by April 16th to the Writer-In-Residence, Elizabeth Withey. Email ewithey@epl.ca.
