A giant shout out to all of my TYCA-SW colleagues and friends who made the journey to Little Rock for this year's conference. It was great to see you all! While I'm glad the conference is over and that it appears to have been a success, I'm sad that we only have two days together each year. Looking forward to Laredo in '10.
Thanks especially to everyone who attended the literary reading session late on Friday afternoon. Thanks also to my fellow readers Nancy Herschap, David Charlson, and my PTC colleague, Antoinette Brim. You all were spectacular! And a double thanks to those who were able to buy my book. On this blog I advocate for supporting writers by attending readings and buying books/journals, and I was so fortunate to have such a great audience and such great support.
If you are a new reader of the blog, I usually post on MWF in the morning and sometimes on the weekend. My posts are almost exclusively about my poetry life rather than my teaching life. I hope you will find them useful.
