AWP Conference Panel, Book Signing and Reading


I will be in Seattle for the AWP Conference, and will be participating in a panel, book signing, and reading.  See the schedule below!

Thursday, February 27
AWP Conference
Washington State Convention Center &
Sheraton Seattle Hotel
Seattle, WA

Participating in the panel: “Writing Toward the Future: High School Creative Writing Programs.” With Monika Cassel, Jamie Figueroa, Anne-Marie Oomen, Scott Gould. Room 2B, Washington State Convention Center, Level 2. 3:00 pm.

As writing programs multiply around the nation, high school writing majors in arts schools are the new frontier. What does such an early emphasis on the craft of writing offer young students during the high school years and beyond? What should a writer hoping to teach at such a program expect? Instructors and program directors of arts school creative writing programs across the country explore what intensive training in creative writing can offer today’s youth and today’s teachers of writing.

Book signing at the Rose Metal Press table at the AWP bookfair (Table R5). 4:30-5:30 pm.

Rose Metal Press authors Kim Henderson and Gregory Robinson will be reading in an offsite reading near the convention center hosted by Ricochet, La Presse, Anomalous, Gold Line Press, and Rose Metal Press at the Freehold Theater, 2222 2nd Ave. 6:30 to 8:30 pm.

Thursday, February 27-Saturday, March 1

Podcast on summerbooks and reading on TNBBC’s Audio Series

Click to hear Natalie Sypolt and Renee Nicholson’s discussion of The Kind of Girl on summerbooks.


And, since Renee and Natalie recommend pairing The Kind of Girl with the new release by singer/songwriter Neko Case (along with a tempting drink), check out the trailer for her new album (and why not try the drink recommendation, too?).

Next, Click to hear my reading of “Muscle Memory,” from The Kind of Girl on TNBBC’s Audio Series.  And why not have another “American Sweetheart” (drink recipe found at the end of the summerbooks podcast)?
