AWP 2019 Panel

Crafting the Capital of the Modern Chapbook

What defines a successful chapbook—content, impact, beauty, sales? This panel will explore best practices for publishing and marketing chapbooks in today’s literary climate. Experienced chapbook publishers (Bateau Press, Doublecross Press, Future Tense Books, Gertrude Press, Newfound) will discuss solutions to common hurdles that presses and prizes face, including sustainability, production, and promotion of these no longer liminal objects. We’ll also consider the future of the chapbook—its expanding forms, genres, and possibilities.
