Compared to poetry and prose, anthologies are sometimes considered second-class citizens. Yet, they've existed for thousands of years and in our own time are experiencing rejuvenation and renewal. In this workshop, we will explore the ethos necessary for shaping and transforming anthologies from nascent ideas to completed works. This workshop will also include a discussion of best practices for writing and submitting proposals for anthologies.
