Went to the AWP (Association of Writers and Writing Programs) conference here in Chicago last weekend. I spent the whole day Saturday going to breakout sessions about MFA programs, short story writing, and creating a web presence as a writer. It was fantastic. The highlight of the day was meeting poet Annie Finch. I bought one of her books and she signed it. We talked for 10 minutes! Very inspirational.
