Wednesday’s Work-in-Progress: Boston-bound!

muse10Boston’s amazing Grub Street has opened registration for its always-fabulous annual conference. This year, The Muse and The Marketplace will take place May 3-5th, 2013, in Beantown’s Park Plaza Hotel.

I’ll be there. How about you?

On Sunday afternoon, I’ll be moderating a session titled “Grubbie Guide to Writing Contests, Conferences, and Residencies.” I know that we’ll all learn a lot from Sheri Joseph (it would be easier to name the residencies she hasn’t won than those she has) and Douglas Trevor, whose honors include the Iowa Short Fiction Award (which resulted in the publication of his collection The Thin Tear in the Fabric of Space). It’s going to be a great session (#8K, if you want a registration shortcut).

I’m so looking forward to this particular trip. This conference is always terrific; I always love returning to Boston; and, above all, it will be springtime!

  1. Terrific, Erika! Hope to see you there. I’ll be there only on Saturday. Your session sounds terrific – and useful.

    Ps. I’m going to AWP for the first time this year, since it’s Boston.

    • I’ll hope to see you, too, Linda. I hadn’t planned to come to AWP at all, but a friend persuaded me. I’ll only be there for a brief time though–not taking time off from work and counting on the public access to the Bookfair on Saturday. It will be an even quicker trip than my journey up for The Muse.

  2. Congrats on landing on a panel!
