AWP Book Fair Begins February 27!
We'll be at Tables T15 and T16 this year. Stop by to say hello--or come to one of our AWP events.
Reading & Reception
Jessie van Eerden will read from Glorybound, her debut novel that won the ForeWord Reviews Editors' Choice Fiction Award last spring. Several other writers who have published with WordFarm, Ruminate and Rock & Sling will also read from their recent work. We promise light snacks and time to chat.
10:30 am, Thursday, Feb 27
WordFarm's poetry editor Marci Johnson (who also has her own poetry collection just out from Sage Hill Press) is participating in a panel, "The Subversive Spirit: Poetry Writing from the Edge of Faith." If you are registered for the conference, you'll want to put this on your dance card!
10-Year Birthday Party
9 pm - midnight, Friday, Feb 28
2014 marks WordFarm's tenth birthday, so we're celebrating at the Hi Spot Cafe with a Friday night party—with the help of our friends from Ruminate, Rock & Sling and The Other Journal. Prepare yourself for free food, a cash bar, some poetry reading, and general confabulation.
The Hi Spot Cafe is about 2 miles due east of the AWP conference site. There is free parking and a variety of great restaurants for dinner throughout the surrounding neighborhood. Come and go as you like from the party.
