AWP Chicago 2012

January 23, 2012

River Teeth is partnering with the Ashland University MFA Program and the Ashland Poetry Press as major sponsors of this year's AWP Conference in Chicago. As sponsors, we're thrilled to host an on-site reception for RT and hope you'll stop by the Wiliford A Room, Thursday, March 1 from 7-8:15 p.m. on the 3rd floor of the Hilton Chicago Conference Hotel. Editors Joe Mackall and Dan Lehman will be mingling about, along with Managing Editor Sarah Wells, Assistant Managing Editor Joan Hanna, and Associate Editor Bob Cowser.  We'd love for you to stop in.

If you can't make it to the party, stop by Booth #503 for discount subscriptions, back issues, copies of the River Teeth Reader, and information on how you can receive a special AWP discount on registration for the Inaugural River Teeth Nonfiction Conference May 18-20.  Surely Sarah and/or other RT-friendly faces will be camped out with the MFA program and the press at the bookfair.

Finally, Editor Joe Mackall will be on a panel at AWP on Friday, March 2:

10:30-11:45 a.m. - The Writer in the World: A Look at Immersion Writing
(Robin Hemley, Melissa Pritchard, Joe Mackall, Stephanie Elizondo Griest, Christopher Merrill)
Continental B, Hilton Chicago, Lobby Level
Immersion journalism, travel writing, and immersion memoir all engage writers in projects that involve the self but don’t solely rely on the writer’s memory and imagination. In immersion journalism, the writer uses the self to write about the world. In immersion memoir, the writer uses the world to write about the self. And in travel writing, there’s a bit of both. Several accomplished writers of these forms discuss the writer’s relationship and responsibility to the world at large.
