I love doing readings, gang, and I have three three of them coming up over the next several weeks. And if you haven’t bought your copy of Box Cutters yet, you’ll be able to grab one at any of these events.
The first is at AWP in Seattle. If you’re at the conference, you’ll probably see me at some of the panels, a lot of the readings, but if you’re having trouble finding me, look for the nearest coffee place (before lunch) or bar (after lunch), or come on down to the bookfair, where I’ll probably be lurking around the sunnyoutside press table (Q9 — we’re sharing space with The Austin Review). In fact, I’m scheduled to hang out at the sunnyoutside table on Thursday from 11 to noon. (More on my time at the conference in another post soon.)
I’ll also be practically the last thing anyone sees at the conference: I’m joining an amazing line-up of sunnyoutside press authors for the Sweet Fanny AWP late-night reading. If you’re at the conference or just happen to be in the Seattle area, come find us Saturday night, 10 pm til 1 am, at the Georgetown Liquor Company.
Then, just a few days later, I’m joining a gang of poets for the monthly Ink Noise Review reading in Portland. We’ll all be down at the Jade Lounge in southeast PDX; we start at 8 pm but come early and get yourself a beer.
And on March 17 — St. Patty’s Day! — I’m participating in Smallpressapalooza at Powell’s City of Books downtown. This is a HUGE small press festival featuring some stunning poets, fictioners, and essayists. We’ll be in the Pearl Room from 6 to 10(ish), but I’m up in the first half of the evening, so come early and hear us all.
