I've been tweeting for AWP, which is terrific (Thanks Caleb!) but I'm starting to have that feeling that every conversation I have is potential blog content. And I have developed "AWP eye," that roaming eye syndrome where I'm speaking with someone but my eye starts to drift to see who's passing by. But I have to say I've had a lot of little moments that add up to one fantastic conference.
Saturday has been the busiest day at AWP. It's also the day booksellers unload their inventory for cheap or free because no one wants to hall anything back home. Needless to say, I have picked up a few freebies.
Here are a few pictures from the conference.
Jacqueline Jones LaMon and me
Poet-bloggers unite! Me, Kelli Russell Agodon, Kristin Berkey-Abbott, and Susan Rich at the White Pine Press reading at Busboys and Poets.
And the two photos that follow are from VIDA and the Men Who Love Us. Sixteen fabulous male writers read short selections by women writers. It was a very cool reading.
