Chapbook Compilation

Email CVB Designs

Memorialize your poetic talents for the enjoyment of generations to come. Whether you have serious publishing goals or just want to leave a lasting impression for family and friends, I would love to help.

A chapbook is traditionally a small collection of poems, sometimes built around a unified theme, that a poet might hand out after a reading or sell as a self-published work. They also make great heirloom gift items for family and friends. They are rarely reviewed, and are usually produced in small press runs. But the average printshop has certain minimal ordering requirements,as well as additional set up and design fees that may still put the cost of a chapbook out of range for a struggling writer.

But have you ever tried to produce your own? The process can be both time -consuming and frustrating, especially for the inexperienced. And yet, even with your best efforts you may still not get the results you were looking for . Remember, your work is your resume so it is prudent to see that it is polished to perfection... That my friends is where we come in.
