I may write some more about these books as I read them or possibly review them for the El Paso Times later this summer. I had a good time at AWP. At first I was wondering about alone wondering what the hell I was doing there, but then I started meeting people. It was a good experience.
I have papers to grade today mostly, and then I need to go to Colorado Humanities to take some paper work in for Writers in the Schools so I can get paid! Yay!
