AWP Details

It's hard to tear myself away from coverage of
the revolution in Egypt, but here are more details
on my AWP events. Please visit me if you're at
the conference! Let me know what you've been
up to, and where I can read your work. I'm also
increasingly interested in collaborating, especially
with visual artists, so keep that in mind.
Events on Friday, Feb. 4th:
10-11 am
book signing for Love Is A Map I Must Not Set On Fire

Panel: Don't Ask/Don't Tell the Workshop

Harding Room
Marriott Wardman Park, Mezzanine Level
F144. Don’t Ask/Don’t Tell the Workshop. (Lori Horvitz, Lee Ann Roripaugh, Carol Guess, Kristin Naca, Catherine Reid) This panel questions the common workshop practice of critiquing through a formalist lens, in which the larger ideological/historical contexts of a piece remain unspoken. What are the implicit tensions between this approach and teachers or students who perceive the workshop as an inherently political space? As queer women writers and teachers, we will discuss strategies and possibilities for raising social awareness in classroom discussions and dynamics.
