The purpose of this project was to assemble a collection of poems and create a chapbook. During the class meetings various styles of writing were taught such as: creative non-fiction and flash fiction for stories; villanelle, pantoum, free verse, persona, narrative, lyric, and ekphrastic for poetry. Figurative language was also highly emphasized. The student then gathered his/her best work, fourteen to twenty poems, and put them together with a table of contents, title page and a biography. This finished assignment meets the criteria for submitting the work to chapbook contests.
