Some AWP 2008 panels of interest

A lot of things going on this year at AWP. Many things I’ll not be able to get to, including events with Jean Valentine and Reginald Shepherd, among many others. But, I’ll be able to get to many as well. Here are some events that look promising, to which I’m hoping I might be able to make it.


Thursday

10:30 a.m.-11:45 a.m.

Grand Ballroom
Hilton, 3rd Floor
R129. Ausable Press Presents the Poet's Notebook: Charles Simic & Bruce Weigl, a Reading and Conversation. (Chase Twichell, Charles Simic, Bruce Weigl) For some poets, note taking is an essential part of the daily work of making poems, and becomes a kind of ongoing companion labor intimately related to the work that is eventually made public. Two very different poets, Charles Simic and Bruce Weigl, will read from their private notebooks, and talk about the relationship between that writing and the finished poems, which they will also read.

1:30 p.m.-2:45 p.m.

Grand Ballroom
Hilton, 3rd Floor
R163. A Tribute to Russell Edson. (Russell Edson, Brian Clements, Robert Bly, Charles Simic, James Tate) Sentence: A Journal of Prose Poetics presents Robert Bly, Charles Simic, and James Tate discussing the work of Russell Edson, followed by a reading by Russell Edson.
