Countdown: AWP 2013

22 Feb

AWP is less than two weeks away and I’ve already started laying out my clothes and packing my bags (in my head, of course)!  Even though J. and I paid way too much money for our flight from Houston to Boston ($1100 United — are you kidding me?!  AND it’s not even first class!), I’m still excited for another conference, another city, and to see old friends and meet new writers!

Where you can find me at this year’s conference:

Illness as Muse: Ten Years of the Bellevue Literary Review
Room 210, Level 2
Hynes Convention Center
Friday, March 8, 2013
Boston, MA

Zone 3 Press Reading
Friday, March 8, 2013
First Church Boston
66 Marlborough St., Boston, MA

Book Signing w/ Perugia Press
Saturday, March 9, 2013
AWP Bookfair
Boston, MA

I’m so thankful to have been invited to read my work with the above presses!  I will be getting into town late afternoon on Thursday, March 7.  We’ll be staying at the convention hotel (if all goes according to plan — and it so rarely does at AWP).  If you want to meet up, let me know!  Where will you be?  Where are the good parties?  I’m thinking of trying again for Wine Party 2013 (Wine Party 2012 at Chicago’s AWP ended as soon as it began due to a certain friend spilling wine on the floor of my hotel room — lucky for us there were plenty towels and a strategically placed desk and garbage can).
