AWP 2017 Recap

This past February I had the honor of being on the panel, "Declaring Independence: Surviving Outside of Academia" at AWP 2017 in Washington, DC. My fellow panelists included, Angela Mitchell, Vanessa Blakeslee and Colette Sartor. We discussed what it takes to start teaching your own creative writing classes in the nontraditional environment (meaning outside of an institution of higher learning). We had a great turnout and the audience asked some thought-provoking questions. It was a pleasure to talk about how I started Writer's Atelier.

Black Fox Literary Magazine also had a spot at the LitLando table. We were alongside local literary buddies, Burrow Press, Ghost Parachute Magazine, The Jack Kerouac Project Writing Residency, and The Drunken Odyssey with John King Podcast.

Below are some additional photos from the trip. I'm looking forward to next year when AWP comes to Tampa, FL!
