Matthew moved our table to a better location, and it seemed we got more traffic. Sold some books, although over the 3 AWP days I didn’t sell as many copies of OFC as at a poetry reading. Met/saw KSM, RL, TP, EP, CD, JG, WF, DP, EB, SH, SS and her beautiful baby… probably forgetting some people… still didn’t meet ET, AK.
So, AWP was tiring and boring, and it was fun to hang out with the people at my table and meet people I’d only known online, I didn’t lose much money, but it’s not something I’ll likely do again. I don’t submit to magazines; I don’t need a publisher; I don’t have any interest in the panels or readings. So… yeah. There are other modes of interacting with poetry that I prefer– and I might have to reconsider my decision not to go to Electric City.
