Post AWP Coma

This year's AWP has concluded in typical glorious fashion. I managed to push Imaginary Friend Press titles into many new hands, got some new exposure, and realized I need business cards. I brought home twenty two new books to read - highlights include: Martha Collins's White Papers, Patty Paine's The Sounding Machine, Laura Yes Yes's How To Sleep With a White Boy in Ten Easy Steps, and Gary Jackson's Missing You, Metropolis.
Before AWP, I heard the great news that Emerge Literary Journal chose two poems for their second issue. I will be gracing the same space as my dear friend, Anthony Frame. As always, I will hope for more good news soon, but until winning the lottery I will go to work.
