AWP 2017: Dinner and Poetry Reading
I'm not on any panels this year, but I'll be attending the Association of Writers and Writing Program's 2017 Conference and Book Fair in Washington, D.C. in early February with full enthusiasm anyway. I'm a dork like that. Also, I'm excited to participate in an off-site event to celebrate several issues of Menacing Hedge, an online literary magazine that will release a special print anthology specifically for the 2017 AWP bookfair. For more information about the reading, please click here. Or, you can RSVP your attendance by visiting their Facebook event page.
More chapters from 'The Woman with the Frog Tongue' featured in PBQ's online "Monsters" issue
If you haven't visited Painted Bride Quarterly before, now might be a good time to do so. They've just released one of their annual themed issues, this one centered around the word "Monsters," and judging from what I heard on the podcast, they received a variety of interpretations on this theme -- so if the subject interests you, click here. (Also, it just happens to include four (FOUR!!) more chapters of my fairy tale poem, "The Woman with the Frog Tongue," which *I* find pretty exciting . . .)
Selections from 'The Woman with the Frog Tongue' featured on PBQ's podcast, "The Slush Pile"
Last summer I received an email from the editors of Painted Bride Quarterly informing me that my submission to their "Monsters"-themed issue had been selected for discussion (and would be voted on) during an upcoming episode of their biweekly podcast. The regular podcast features current editors -- sometimes convening electronically over different time zones and across continents -- discussing work that is in the final tier of consideration for publication. The experience was a nerve-wracking one, but (spoiler alert)ultimately edifying and insightful. They accepted not only the poems discussed in this episode, but two others in the series as well -- and their entire discussion is now archived for posterity here -- just in case you were curious about what an editorial meeting at PBQ sounds like..
