AWP: Tampa!

Looking forward to attending this year’s AWP Conference in Tampa, Florida—and not just because the weather’s better there than in DC this week!

George Mason University’s Creative Writing Program is one of this year’s sponsors, and I’ll be helping at our booths—1224 and 1226—along with Bill Miller, the current director of the program, and Gregg Wilhelm, just announced as the next director, and representatives from Fall for the Book, Stillhouse Press, Phoebe, So To Speak, and Gazing Grain Press.

Additionally, I’ll be helping to host and emcee Mason’s reception on Thursday, March 8, 5-7 p.m. at Bernini of Ybor, 1702 East 7th Street, in Tampa. In addition to good food and drink, the program will also include an introduction of Gregg Wilhelm as the new director and short readings from faculty member Kyoko Mori, alum John Copenhaver, current student Kristen Brida, and Stillhouse Press author Dan Tomasulo. Check the FB event page for more information.

And in between times, there’s coffee, cocktails, and plenty of opportunities to chat—see you there!
