AWP 2015

I won't be at AWP 2015 but some of my work will.

1) Find my book at the Mayapple Press table in the Exhibition Hall at Booth 1237 (right in front of the AWP Stage). Also, consider attending the Mayapple Press & One Wet Shoe Reading as follows (I won't be there):

What: Mayapple Press and One Wet Shoe Reading
Where: 609 S 10th Street Minneapolis, MN 55404 (Map)
When: Saturday April 11, 2015
Time: 7pm to 9pm
Participating Mayapple Press authors:
Betsy Johnson-Miller, author of Fierce This Falling
Devon Moore, author of Apology of a Girl Who Is Told She Is Going to Hell
Helen Ruggieri, co-editor of Written On Water: Writings About the Allegheny River and author of Glimmer Girls

2) "Crows, Reckoning," a poem from my new Mayapple Press book Mendeleev's Mandala, was subsequently made into a Motionpoem. There'll be a sneak preview at the VIDA Awards (and I won't be there either!).
