Off to AWP!

If you’ll be at the AWP conference in Denver this week, I’d love to see you at one of my events:

Declarations of Independence: Voices from The Writer's Center
Friday, April 9
1:30 PM to 2:45 PM
Room 401, 402 – CCC
In its 33-year history, The Writer's Center has fostered exceptional work in all genres of writing through its exceptional workshop program. The writers represented here began writing with us, developed book projects with us, or found support in our community of writers and readers. Join us as we celebrate their work and literary accomplishments.
Featuring: Charles Jensen, Dwaine Rieves, Leslie Pietrzyk, James Mathews, Rose Solari

Shhh!: Librarians, Archivists, and Writers Discover Research
Saturday, April 10
3:00 PM to 4:15 PM
Room: Agate ­ Hyatt
How can fiction writers and poets make the best use of research time? Is your novel set in a historical period? Could your poem use a scientific metaphor? Do you need that detail that can be the hook for your memoir? How can research invite writerly serendipity? Information research professionals and writers are natural allies. This panel will bring these perspectives together to present ways of working with physical materials in archives, electronic resources beyond Google, and other resources.
Featuring: Douglas Dechow, Elizabeth Kadetsky, Leslie Pietrzyk, Cathy Day, Leslie Adrienne Miller, Rachel Hall

AWP Conference: April 7-10, 2010
Hyatt Regency Hotel
650 15th Street
