This is a 4-session hands-on class where you will design your own chapbook, cover, interior, and whatever else you might want to include (a color insert printed separately from the writing, for example). You will learn to use Scribus, free and open-source publishing software that will allow you to produce a professional end product. In Scribus, we will learn everything from page layout basics, master pages, auto-generating table of contents, and how to transfer work from 8″x11″ Word pages to the smaller dimensions in which books normally exist. If you haven’t become a collector of rare and beautiful fonts, this class will show you where to find the coolest, freest fonts the internet has to offer, with a focus on making your work appear as sharp as it can.
