    Bookmaking:  a six hour writing intensive workshop

    to jumpstart and/or revitalize

    your book project hosted by TRUE COLORS BOOKSTORE





     In this workshop we will explore creating your book, no matter what genre you have chosen—fiction (short stories/novel), memoir (prose/poetry).  We will examine the stories you need to tell in order to discover the theme of your project.  Emphasis will be on overall theme and how it affects organization, format, and production.  Discussion will also include the healing power of bookmaking.  This workshop is for writers who are interested in creating a book (chapbook, art book, literary book) no matter where you may be in the process (not yet begun, started, first draft, etc.).


    Participants should bring with them their book in progress if they have one (poems, chapters, ideas, etc.).  Also any visual items that might enhance the book (possible cover art, documents or photos, etc.)
