I'm looking forward to AWP and seeing Austin for the first time. Out Traveler magazine just happens to have an article about Austin in the current issue: "Lone Star: Why Austin really is the brightest, gayest spot in all of Texas." Check it out here and see what clubs and hotels and sites they recommend.
I'd love to meet up with any blogger poets who are there. Back channel and let's set up a time. Maybe a group gathering Wednesday evening? Or at one of the many many many receptions?
Or come to one of the panels I am on (see date and times at right), and say hi! (or "howdy" if you are feeling really Brokeback). I'll have Dean with me, so you can meet my better half.
