I will be at AWP 2013

Hi folks, for those of you interested and in the area, I will be appearing at the 2013 AWP conference in Boston on Saturday, March 9. Here's a link to the event. I think my involvement is with the Bookfair part of the conference, but I'm not entirely sure. Stay tuned.

I don't know much about AWP, except that it stands for Association of Writing Programs or something similar. It's sort of a meeting place for people interested in, or involved with, academic writing programs, both creative writing and other kinds.

So it's kind of ironic that I'm involved, as my academic career is well and truly dead. But there you go.

My publisher, Red Hen Press, has a table in the hall, as I gather many publishers do, especially independents and small presses. I've been asked to sign copies of An Age of Madness on Saturday, March 9 from 12:30pm to 1:3pm, and I will happily do so. There will also be about two zillion other publishers and writers milling about, so it should be a terrific opportunity to meet some people and discover some great books.

I realize this post is a little thin on details... but then, so am I. I will post more when the time draws closer and I have a better sense of what's going. See you in Boston.

I very well may be making a trip out to AWP this year. I'd love to steal a hug if I'm there!
