Blow Up: Untitled 4 (2007) by Ori Gersht at the Walker Art Center AKA what I call the post-AWP portrait

I didn’t get to see much of Minneapolis while at AWP, but I can say that the streets and pubs pulsed with positive energy and friendliness for AWP goers. A late Sunday afternoon departure allowed for a pleasant walk to the Walker Art Center and then brunch at The Bird. It was a wonderful…

What's making me happy this week (April 10)

What’s making me happy this week (April 10)

This weekly post is a couple of days late. The WordPress app frustrates me. I tried to post this via my phone and tablet, but it just wasn’t happening. Now I’m home, typing on my familiar laptop which I missed!

I spent Thursday through Saturday in Minneapolis at the AWP Conference. This is the largest conference for writers, writing professors and other professionals associated with writing and…

Have you read award-winner Meg Day’s poems? #NaPoMo #AWP

Have you read award-winner Meg Day’s poems? #NaPoMo #AWP

Recently, I signed up for a workshop course entitled The Day After: Poems of Peace, Provocation, and Witness, taught by Meg Day in Salt Lake City. At the time, I was not yet familiar with Meg or her work. It’s been a remarkable experience, as I told a friend of mine, “just being in the room with her.” Her teaching style is one of leading to truth, rather than presenting doctrine. She asks more…

Attending the AWP Conference this year?

I’ll be joining Kate Hopper, Hope Edelman, Bonnie Rough and Marybeth Holleman to “consider what happens when we write about past events in the present tense. When does present tense provide needed immediacy, and when does it limit an author’s ability to write to the true story? We will explore the benefits, challenges, and drawbacks of using present tense as we craft our lives on the page, and we will discuss how tense affects other craft issues, such as voice, reflection, and structure.”

I just got the housing scholarship for the AWP conference!

YAY! Okay. That means I only have to pay $25 per night for the hotel room that I’ll share with two other volunteers. So it will only cost a total of $75 to stay, and hopefully Tech will fund that and my flight since I got the scholarship! That means I’ll only have to pay for food during the trip, gas to get to/from Little Rock, and my $50 application fee. THIS MIGHT ACTUALLY WORK!

Let’s hope they do fund it because if they don’t, I’ll go from having to pay about $150 to having to pay about $750. And well, I just wouldn’t be able to do that.

Two of our editors share a handful of panels they’re excited for. Naturally, we’ll be spending a lot of time at The Conium Review table (#2025). But there will be three of us at AWP (Chelsea, James, and Uma), so hopefully we’ll all get to attend our panel/presentation wishlists.

Chelsea Werner-Jatzke’s top fiveeight panels (because lists of five or ten are just too neat and tidy for a badass like…
