AWP 2010 Thoughts
Denver did a great job hosting AWP.
Best readings: Mary Biddinger, G.C. Waldrep, Oliver de la Paz, and Major Jackson. Kudos to Diode Poetry and FishHouse.
Hot topic: Delivery system of the literary magazine. Print, online, Kindle, or IPad? Would you like an app with that?
Controversial trend: Submission fees for lit mags.
Grayest area: Copyrights. Think multimedia. Electronic rights. Then there’s Kindle and IPad again. What about YouTube? Read your contract before you sign.
More Q’s than A’s.
It was a pleasure to meet and chat with Margo Stever (Frozen Spring) and Diane Wakoski (The Diamond Dog).
Best meal: Dinner at Laguna’s with Jules.
