Workshop Description

In this workshop, CWP Press will discuss the key components of a well-constructed zine, and show participants how to make one. CWP will also address the common pitfalls young authors come up against when submitting work. And finally, they’ll answer the question we’ve all been asking: What exactly is the difference between a zine and a chapbook?

Meet Your Instructor 
We are poets ourselves. We aim to help the poets we publish to reach a wider audience. Our books are handmade by our team of tenacious poets. We are a unique publishing experience in that we allow for as much or as little input from the author as desired. When given the reigns to do as we like, some spectacular chapbooks have formed.

In the winter of 2015, we formed like Voltron into a collective of young poets who are committed to making poetry more accessible. In only a years time, we’ve discovered that there is a lot to know. We are constantly evolving as we learn more about formatting and what materials are available. One thing will not change, we will continue to craft handmade chapbooks. We do runs of 100 chapbooks (except for anthologies)

Meet Your Instructor 
Pete Wright is an international award-winning Master Photographer and writer based out of Bradenton, Fl. As a fourth generation artist and second generation photographer, Pete got his start as a professional and college sports photographer and eventually expanded into weddings and portrait photography. Outside of his client work, Pete has an extensive body of fine art photography and uses his free time to create new works which he considers to be his chicken soup for the soul. Through his success in print competition, Pete has become passionate about the physical print and an advocate for selling printed images and learning from the process of printing ones own work. In early 2016, Pete took his passion for the print to the next level when he began working for Canon USA in their large format print division, where he is able to continue to help educate about inkjet printing.

In May 2015, Pete’s First Book “Cinematic Portraits, How to Create Classic Hollywood Photography” was published by Amherst Media and was followed in the Summer of 2016 by his Wedding Photography book “Wedding Photography Kickstart” co-authored with his wife, Liliana. His work is also featured prominently in the Amherst title “500 Poses for Photographing Full-Length Portraits: A Visual Sourcebook for Digital Portrait Photographers” Additionally Pete has been a regular contributor to Professional Photographer Magazine, Action News Magazine, Richmond Weddings Magazine and others

Pete has been lecturing around the world since 2005 in both platform and hands-on environments. He has spoken and judged multiple times at both Imaging USA and WPPI and lectured around the world at various workshops, state and regional conventions. He has also worked extensively as an International Print competition judge and chair for well over a decade. Pete is a true believer in the term “Pay it forward” and feels it is his responsibility to be an open book, sharing his knowledge.
