>2011 is sneaking up on us. It’ll be here in just a few days, and I’m not sure I’m ready. For one thing, I seem to have agreed to participate in some literary events in the first half of the year, which means . . . soon.
First, there’s the AWP Conference in DC. Can you believe that’s just five weeks away (February 2-5)? Makes me tired (and cold) just thinking about it. I’m on two panels plus I’ll be there at the Press 53 table promoting my lit journal, Prime Number Magazine and also my book, In an Uncharted Country.
Then there’s the Virginia Festival of the Book, which is March 16-20 in Charlottesville. I may or may not be involved with a program, but I’ll still be attending as much of the festival as I can.
And then there’s the Queens University MFA Alumni Conference, May 19-22, which is, in part, a celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the program. I’ll be there!
