Oh, yeah, it’s AWP time. It’s time to drag myself out to the place of my college sins, otherwise known as the Upper Midwest. It’s time to scan the faces of 10,000 writers to find a few friends. It’s time for snarky note taking during boring panels. DP and I are going and we’re going to schmooze our little hearts out. I’ve scheduled time with friends, noted panels given by people I know that I should attend out of loyalty, found some readings that I should definitely not miss, and if it is all too much I will go back to my little hotel room and write. When AWP was in Boston, there was sideways snow. Let’s see what Minnesota has on offer.
What are your tips for surviving conferences/travel/the Upper Midwest?
