AWP Conference

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.

  1. Nice blog. As an English teacher, if you aren't already into cryptic crosswords you might like to have a peek at a series of posts I have been doing on how to solve them. They are just fantastic for clever word play. This is a link to the first post. There is now a new clue each day to solve. Enjoy. http://caroleschatter.blogspot.co.nz/2012/01/cryptic-crosswords-solving-hints-1.html
