It’s hard to believe that AWP Denver is just around the corner. I’m very excited about seeing old friends and meeting some new ones. The conference, book fair, and off-sight readings often feel overwhelming so I’ve decided to be very zen-like about the whole thing and just go with the flow.
That said, there are some on-sight panels & readings that I’m very excited about:
9:00 a.m.-10:15 a.m. R122. The Networked Poetry Classroom. (Chris Hosea, Eric Baus, Dorothea Lasky, Mathias Svalina, Michelle Taransky)
10:30 a.m.-11:45 a.m. R138. Ahsahta Press 35th Anniversary Reading. (Sandra Doller, Brigitte Byrd, Kate Greenstreet, Brenda Iijima, Susan Tichy, Lance Phillips, Rachel Loden)
10:30 a.m.-11:45 a.m. F140. National Book Critics Circle: The Practice and Purpose of Poetry Reviewing. (Kevin Prufer, Matthew Zapruder, Craig Morgan Teicher, Nickole Brown, Timothy Donnelly)
Noon.-1:15 p.m. F169. Gurlesque Poetry: A Reading. (Lara Glenum, Cathy Wagner, Dorthea Lasky, Danielle Pafunda, Cathy Park Hong, Elizabeth Treadwell)
10:30 a.m.-11:45 a.m. S138. jubilat 10th Anniversary Reading. (Robert Casper, Dara Wier, Lisa Olstein, Jen Bervin, Peter Gizzi, Cathy Park Hong)

Stay tuned for Parts 2 & 3 when I delve into the off-sight readings and discuss what books and broadsides I’m hoping to buy at the fair.
