I want to compile a list of the AWP goodies & events our readers can look for.
I will kick it off by mentioning that the PANK / Annalemma / Mud Luscious Press off-site reading will be 2.3 @ 7 pm & features readings by Molly Gaudry, Amber Sparks, Sasha Fletcher, Matt Bell, Mathias Svalina, & others. & at the Mud Luscious Press table (shared with our Dzanc friends) we are giving away 5 signed copies of Andrew Borgstrom’s new Greying Ghost chapbook & 5 super-signed editions of FIRST YEAR, autographed at AWP by Michael Kimball, Michael Martone, Brian Evenson, Kim Chinquee, Kevin Wilson, Jac Jemc, & a host of others.
But MLP is only a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of what is going on at AWP.
2.3: FC2 reading with Kate Bernheimer, Amelia Gray, Lance Olsen, & others
2.3: The Literati Gong Show with FlatmanCrooked, Dzanc, Featherproof, Hobart & Barrelhouse
2.4: Post Road / Redivider party (they promise: absolutely NO readings)
2.4: Atticus Books happy-hour reading with Steve Himmer & others
2.4: Vermin on the Mount, sponsored by Annalemma, with Roy Kesey, Kim Chinquee, & others
All the details on these (& many other off-site events) are listed here, thanks to the AWP organizers, but what else is there? Freebies? Giveaways? People to meet or sign or hear read?
