I’ll be happy to return temporarily to Minnesota for the Associated Writing Programs Conference (AWP) in Minneapolis, April 8-11 2015. I’m doing a few things (besides seeing friends and going to poetry readings) while I’m there.
You can hear me on the offsite panel organized by the London Review of Books, at Ryan’s Pub, 1410 Nicollet, 3pm Thursday. I’ll be honored to join J. Robert Lennon, Leslie Jamison, Christian Lorentzen and Emily Cooke.
You can hear me read poems at the Minnesota Expat Reading sponsored by Rain Taxi at the Walker Art Center at 6:30pm (both events are free and do not require AWP badges).I’ll be reading from my brand-new chapbook, All-Season Stephanie, as well as from various full-length books of poems.
If you are coming to the convention itself (i.e. if you have a badge) please do come to our Friday morning panel (at 9am) on conflicts of interest in book reviewing, with Eric Lorberer of Rain Taxi, Karen Long of the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards (late of the Cleveland Plain Dealer), Rusty Morrison of Omnidawn Press, and the fiction writer Brian Evenson.
I’ll be signing All-Season Stephanie at the Rain Taxi booth in the exhibit hall Friday at 10:30am, after our panel concludes.
