AWP — Press 53 Booth

This year at AWP, instead of overwhelming myself with panels, I went to only one each day (because, frankly, I didn’t see a lot that appealed to me). The rest of the time I was in the bookfair, mostly at the Press 53/Prime Number Magazine Booth. That was fun, in part because so many people stopped by to say hello. I especially loved it when people I didn’t know came up to me to thank me for my Literary Magazine Rankings. It’s nice to be appreciated.

At the Press 53/Prime Number booth, I got to hang out with many other Press 53 Authors and help the publisher sell their books (along with mine). Also, most of these authors joined us for the Press 53 reading at Barnes & Noble on Friday night. I have most of these books now, and I look forward to reading the ones I haven’t yet read:

About the author


  1. Really enjoy that you share the books you buy and intend to read. I look them up. Not all appeal but some do. Much thanks.
