AWP 2015: Cake & Kegs
Posted on 06 April 2015
Spring is here, my thesis has been defended, and I just went thrift shopping and bought three more purple shirts to add to my ever-purpling wardrobe. It’s also AWP time. Here’s where I’ll be, dear readers, in case you too are Minneapolis-bound and would like to say hello:
Thursday, April 9, 2-3pm: Mid-American Review table (#1728)
Thursday, April 9, 6pm: ExtravaCHANDRA reading with fellow BkMk Press authors. I’ll be reading short excerpts from “Live Model” and “The Ballad Solemn of Lady Malena” — in other words, about lingerie window models and creepy figure skater stalkers. We’ll have snacks! Loring Park Arts Center, 1382 Willow Street 55403 (four blocks from the convention center)
Friday, April 10, 1-2pm: Mid-American Review table (#1728)
Friday, April 10, 3pm: I’ll be moderating and participating in the panel “The Long and the Short of It: Five Debut Authors Divulge How They Got Their Short Fiction Collections Published, Buzzed, Reviewed, and Read.” This will be so helpful to anyone interested in one day publishing a short story collection — I know I wish I had received this advice several years ago. Room 208 C&D, Level 2
Friday, April 10, 8-11pm: Mid-American Review 35th Anniversary Party. We’ll have cake and a keg! Please contact me directly for the specific party details; I’d love to see you there.
I can likely be found at the Mid-American Review table at other times throughout the conference, as well. Otherwise, you can probably find me in a session, wandering confused and overwhelmed through the bookfair, or guzzling coffee. See you there!
