Thanks to Rachel Simon, I'm looking forward to presenting on a panel at the upcoming Association of Writers and Writing Programs Annual Conference (AWP) in Minneapolis, April 8 - 11. See you there?
For more information, here's an overview of the conference, full list of accepted events and our panel:
Poets Paying the Bills: Balancing Your Writing and Moneymaking. (Rachel Simon, Chloe Yelena Miller, Hila Ratzabi, Shradha Shah, Mary Austin Speaker) “Poetry” is often synonymous with “poverty.” How do we afford groceries and other necessities? Panelists from diverse professional backgrounds will discuss how they balance their paying jobs (emergency room doctor, freelance editor, adjunct professor, poetry press editor, online instructor, and book designer) with their writing practice and families. Two panelists have small children at home.
