If you are planning to attend AWP 2021—online, March 3-7—I hope you will stop by and visit with me in a virtual Meet & Greet, Thursday morning, hosted by Wayne State University Press. Arrive whenever you like and stay for whatever length of time, between 11 and 11:30. (I’ve also got events coming up March 10 and May 23.)

2021 was going to be my year to attend this huge writers conference with my new book of poems, A Fine Canopy, in hand. While it’s true that this is my third book of poems and my fifth book, it’s also true that it’s my first full-length collection of poems, the book over which I have labored the longest and about which I am the most excited–so far. Like so many of us I was really looking forward to wandering the conference and book fair floor and having conversations with writing friends, old and new.

If you are registered for the conference, you can visit with me in Zoomland on Thursday morning between 11 and 11:30. I hope to see you there. Click here.
