We're packing our bags and filling our iBooks for the nearly 11 hour journey from Amsterdam to Seattle. And we're excited.
Our temporary home for the week will be bookfair table #R24. The theme at the table will be a cross between space and speed skating and general Dutch ridiculousness. Kind of like the Heineken House, but with less techno. Drop by the table to check out our latest issues, and take advantage of our AWP-only prices!
The big event for us will be Journal Porn, which we know you've already heard about. But hear it again: Journal Porn is the offsite not-to-miss. Click here for details!
Versal editors are also paneling. Oh yes. Bonnie J. Rough will discuss the present tense in nonfiction ("What Was Is", Thurs. 9am, Room 202, Western New England MFA Annex), BJ Hollars will weigh in on the nonfiction canon ("Organizing the Truth", Fri. 1:30pm, Room 305, Western New England MFA Annex), and Bonnie will return to share how she went from MFA thesis to fully-fledged book ("From Thesis to Book", Fri. 1:30pm, Willow Room, Sheraton Seattle).
Finally, you can catch ed-in-chief Megan M. Garr Thursday night at the LIT SALO(O)N with writers from Unsplendid and A Bad Penny Review. She'll be reading poems from space.
Looking forward to seeing you in Seattle!
