AWP Chicago 2012

Hey all!

We’re out in Chicago for this year’s AWP Writer’s Conference, and we’d love for you to stop by and say hello. We have for sale: copies of last year’s issue, some other back issues, and a makeout session with one of our fiction editors, David. All sales final.

We’re here all weekend!

may release

So, after reading hundreds and hundreds upon thousands of stories/poems (really, there was a lot to read), and being forced to narrow down the selections to a handful of stories/poems, the editors have made their final decisions. We are extremely happy with the quality of work we received, and extremelyx2 happy with what will be in the mag, which is set to come out in May.
what’s next? other than celebrate with beer and Colin Stetson’s, New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges . . . there’s design, production, and other stuff I don’t handle and so don’t need to worry about, personally (more beer for me!).
