I dreamt about the release party for the Anthology. I want to have it in Chicago on New Year’s Eve 2008.
I’m down for Chi! – Hey are you coming down to T-town for Barbara Jane Reyes? – Next week, Thursday the 19th…
Yay! There are lots of anthologized poets in the midwest, and it’s fairly easy to get to Chicago (Southwest, for example), plus it’s easier to go for New Year’s than, like, NYC. I dreamt of a huge warehouse with poetry, bands, booze, books, snacks… a gargantuan party. I will need to get people on the ground in Chicago to help organize… but I think it will be awesome. It was awesome in my dream, anyway. I was leaving the party with some of the House Press boys at 8 a.m. the next morning and there were still people milling around.
and oh yeah, i’ll try to come down for BJR. Lotsa people in Tuscaloosa I want to finally meet in real life.
now, do you mean the nye between 07&08, or between 08&09? (it makes a difference, i wanna know how far in advance to book my tix!)derek

I just started a blog of poets’ dreams. May I include your 4/9 dream (pulling a sentence from the blog entry & a few from your comment field) & attribute it to you?
oh, I must work very hard in the summer & somehow be able to come to the party. poetry has suddenly become my second most expensive pastime (the first being edu. of course).
I’m down for it, but I’ll have to see how my finances go. Yanno, between starting grad school and not being funded for the first year …
I can’t believe the anthology is almost here!
i would like to have one giant release party, but ideally we’d be able to organize local readings for anthologized authors all over the country (incl. Canada). Like, I imagine biweekly Anthology readings, each 2nd week a different locale. Not like the Wave Books tour bus, no one traveling. Just pockets of poets, grassroots.
Hum … Do I have to go back to Texas for its localized reading? Because, yanno, I’d rather not. It being Texas and all.
i think we could help put something together in chicago.
françois, no, by ‘local’ i mean “where you are” … except for the release, i want to minimize traveling/costs and maximize exposure/celebration. (the release being the latter but not the former)
