WLT @ AWP2016
Later this week, World Literature Today editor in chief Daniel Simon will travel to LA to attend the 2016 gathering of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP), the largest literary conference in North America, which will feature many WLT contributors.
On Thursday afternoon, he will appear on the panel “The Garden of Forking Paths: Journals Focusing on Translation” with the editors of Gulf Coast, Copper Nickel, and Circumference.
Friday evening, Daniel will take part in the “Red Dirt” offsite reading with other Oklahoma writers at Tom’s Urban (1011 S Figueroa St, B101), sponsored by the Red Earth MFA program at Oklahoma City University. The reading is free and open to the public (even non-AWP attendees). Hors d’oeuvres will be provided, with an available cash bar.
On Saturday morning, WLT is sponsoring a reading from the November 2015 art poetry issue called “Crossing the Liminal” featuring Lauren Camp, Cole Swensen, and Hedy Habra. With Hedy, Daniel will do a bilingual reading of some of the Spanish poems he co-translated for the issue.
Last but not least, Daniel will sign copies of his new poetry books, Cast Off and After Reading Everything, on Friday, April 1, 11:30am-12:30pm, at the Red Earth MFA table (#1208) and on Saturday, April 2, 1-2pm, at the Eyewear Publishing booth (#326).
If you’re in LA later this week, we hope you’ll stop by and say hello!
