Looking forward to going to Hotlanta for AWP, though it seems like I just got back from ASU. Ah, the life of a jet-setting poet (haha). But seriously, I'm really looking forward to meeting up with several po-bloggers and others.
And now for a little shameless self-promotion:
If you are at AWP make sure to stop by the Bloom booth. Charles Flowers says the new issue is hot off the press (including my little poem "Twenty Years After His Passing My Father Appears to Us in Chicago, at Bobby Chin's Crab & Oyster House, in the Guise of Our Waiter, Ramon").
Also make sure to stop by the Copper Canyon Press table, and pick up a copy (or five! ~grin~) of my hot-off-the-press new book, What's Written on the Body. I'd love to sign one for you! (Other new titles include CD Wright's One Big Self, Dan Gerber's A Primer on Parallel Lives, Ellen Bass' The Human Line, and Marvin Bell's Mars Being Red).
And finally: please come to the off-site reading I am doing with Ann Fisher-Wirth (author of Blue Window, and a study of William Carlos Williams), at Collin Kelly's "Poetry at Portfolio Center" series, on Friday, March 2. It starts at 7:30, and there is an open-mic (sign up at 7pm). The Portfolio Center is located at 125 Bennett Street, Atlanta, GA 30309. Phone: 404.351.5055 or 800.255.3169. See you there!
