Snow versus AWP conference

Like every other writer in the Midwest (and beyond) right now, I am mourning the impeccable timing of this fluffy, white Armageddon, which corresponds perfectly with the big AWP writing conference in Washington DC.  Conference starts tomorrow.  I was supposed to be flying out in 6 hours.  Now I’m scheduled to fly out in 30 hours.  So hopefully that doesn’t get pushed further back.  My goodness, it is fan-freaking-tastic to have such trivial problems as one’s greatest disturbance in life.  Honestly.

Well, if I do, indeed, make it out there this week, please come see me at the Fence Books reading on Saturday night.  Not only am I reading, but I’m reading with some of my favorite writers, which will be a super-honor.  The details are below.  In the meantime, stay warm and safe.
