On Not Going to AWP (Associated Writing Programs annual conference)
Mostly I don't go to conferences and workshops. I loved the AWP I went to and swore never again. I made so many friends I still have and met ones I only had virtually before. And they always have it somewhere in deadest winter. Why not Hawaii? After receiving tons of kind invitations I have to decline I remembered why I'm not going. I have nothing to sell, only things to get published and write. Those things require silence and time.
For those of us staying home at our own private AWP's, here's a NON-AWP party Julie Brooks Barbour started on Facebook. Come on over and join in!
