AWP Annual Conference in Minneapolis (April 8 - 11, 2015)

The annual Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) conference is less than a month away. This year, it will be held from April 8 - 11 in Minneapolis, MN.

I'm excited to be reading with Storyscape and presenting on one panel. Details below.

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.

I'm really looking forward to hearing a reading from you! I've followed you in Narrative and love your off-beat way of writing that makes it seem like I'm not reading the words, but directly thinking them. I hope I get to meet you at The Local. True artists can make stories out of fruit at Customs!
