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 email@example.com.
If you’re intrigued by the research that comes with historical writing, memoir, and journalism, consider attending this free event on Sunday afternoon with Edmonton’s Historian Laureate, Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail, pictured below.
Not Just the Facts: Spinning Stories from History, Memoir, and Journalism
EPL Writer-In-Residence Elizabeth Withey sits down for a fireside chat with Historian Laureate Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail, author of Polar Winds and For the Love of Flying, to discuss their wide-ranging experiences of researching and writing nonfiction. From interviews to oral histories, personal essay to popular history, they will share tips and tricks and a lot of hard-won knowledge. This will be followed by a short private tour of the Heritage Reading Room.
