Looking forward to my first AWP Conference. The schedule is daunting: THIS THING IS HUGE. I’d love to meet up with any bloggers who are there: for a drink, a bite to eat, book shopping, whatever. (Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the concierge desk and leave a message at the Fairmont)
I'll be participating in two readings I’d be so pleased if you’d try to attend. The first is “off-site” at the Vancouver Public Library Friday night. It’s a group of Canadian and American poets, including Judith Barrington, Lorna Crozier, Annie Finch, Susan Rich, Rachel Rose, and myself (am I the only boy? LOL):
Cross-Border Pollination: Canadian and American Poets
Friday, April 1, 5:00 pm
Alice MacKay Room
Vancouver, BC Central Library
350 West Georgia St.
The second is on Saturday afternoon, where I will join three of the other past Hayden Carruth Award winners, from Copper Canyon Press. I’ll read a bit from Saying the World, as well as new stuff from my next manuscript. I believe Michael Wiegers, the new editor at Copper Canyon, will be emceeing.
The First Four: Readings by the Hayden Carruth Award Winners
Saturday 1:30 - 2:45 pm Hyatt Regency
Including: Sascha Feinstein, Rebecca Wee, Jenny Factor, Peter Pereira.
I also plan to go to the Prairie Schooner open house Friday Night (after the library reading).
See you there!
