In case you haven’t heard (is it possible?!), I’ll be in New York City for the annual AWP Conference and Bookfair from January 31 to February 2. Here’s where — if you’re around — I hope you’ll catch up with me:

Terrain.org Table at AWP Conference
Join Terrain.org at the AWP Conference Bookfair at the New York Hilton, Table #480 (Americas Hall II, access from third floor), where you can meet staff and contributors, view a slideshow highlighting the journal, and pick up flyers.

On Saturday, the Bookfair is open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

And the first person to mention this blog entry at our table will receive a free, signed copy of my book of poetry, Riverfall.
