Poetry Chapbooks Explained

Do you enjoy writing poetry, but wonder how to get your poems published? Not many publishers are actively seeking to publish poetry, but what if you produce a chapbook of your own? To find out more about poetry chapbooks, join published author Linda Boyden at the January 11 meeting of Writers Forum.

Boyden is a Redding poet, storyteller, and former primary school teacher whose first picture book, “The Blue Roses,” debuted in 2002 from Lee and Low Books by winning their first New Voices Award. It has won two other national awards and was included on the Cooperative Children’s Book Center 2003 Choices list of recommended titles. Her second book, “Powwow’s Coming,” was published by the University of New Mexico Press in 2007. Her third book, “Giveaways: An ABC Book of Loanwords from the Americas,” is also from the University of New Mexico Press.

Linda enjoys doing school visits, storytelling programs at libraries, and presenting at writing conferences and other events around the country. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI), the Wordcraft Circle of Native Writers & Storytellers, and Redding-based Writers Forum, a nonprofit serving North State writers.

Writers Forum meets from 10:30am – 12:30pm monthly (except for July and August) in the All Saints Episcopal Church Eaton Hall East, located at 2150 Benton Drive, Redding, CA. Doors open at 10am. The public is welcome to get acquainted with two free visits before joining. Annual membership dues are $25.
