Anyone (Babies included) want to do a panel at AWP next year? Proposals are due by the end of April (this April), but the proposal is a simple task -- 500 word description, quick panelist bios, no biggie. The panels are limited to six people, I think. Any of you working at a college or university can probably get a few hundred dollars, if not more, to pay for airfare/hotels and all that (adjuncts CAN get funding sometimes, too). AWP itself does NOT provide funding, and you'd have to register for the conference, which is fairly steep, but it's a great chance to meet smart people and also party with them and with me and with each other and all that fun stuff.
So anyone in?
And what should we yak about?
I've got a few ideas, but anything goes. And to be honest, we could probably do an intelligent regurgitation of some of the threads we've had here on Earth Goat. It's that simple.
