AWP Schedule Now Online

The schedule for AWP 2014 is now online and searchable. I hope to see some of you there in Seattle. Incidentally, I am on a panel this year, about teaching genre writing to undergrads, a topic which upsets many AWP attendees greatly. There will be blood.

Friday, February 28, 2014

10:30 am to 11:45 am

Room LL4, Western New England MFA Annex, Lower Level

F156. Give Me Your Vampires, Your Fae, Your Bulbous Alien Masses Yearning to Breathe Free. (Rachel Swirsky,  Cat Rambo,  Rahul Kanakia,  Brooke Wonders,  Nick Mamatas) Realist and experimental fiction writers often express nervousness about allowing their undergraduates to submit fantasy and science fiction to workshop. Some go so far as to ban such work outright, a tactic that can defuse young writers’ enthusiasm. Join writers whose work has appeared in both literary and genre publications as they discuss how a successful undergraduate workshop can include teaching serious genre fiction.

    Hey Nick,
    The new WCSU MFA literary journal, Poor Yorick, will have a table at AWP in Seattle. Come and see us! Brian Clements will be there along with Melissa Gordon and me.
