FEATURED PROGRAM

Murphy Writing of Stockton University Presents
Poetry Chapbook Workshop
Part of Live Free and Write: A New Hampshire Getaway for Writers
August 14-19, 2016 - Sunapee, NH

In this intensive but supportive workshop, we will learn how to move a batch of poems into a well-crafted chapbook-length manuscript. Working as each other’s editors and collaborators, we will explore methods to order, group and title our poetry collections to maximize thematic impact. We will consider what to include and what to exclude. We will also discuss how and where to submit our "book" for publication. The workshop leader and participants will read each manuscript before the retreat.

Limited to 8 participants—Led by Lois Marie Harrod, author of 16 books of poetry

"I've never done an overnight writing retreat before and was amazed at how much writing happened just being away from home. The atmosphere was perfect: open, honest, sincere and so encouraging. Definitely worth the money, the drive and the time!" ~ Anne, Belmont, MA
