I had a great time at AWP this past week. There were so many people to see, meet, and say hello to that it’s really kind of an impossible mission to complete. Someone should make a video game out of it to inspire kids to become writers. It would be like: I have to make it to the Hobart table before they run out of magic juice (whiskey)…I have to make it to the Sun Magazine reading to see Cheryl Strayed and get 500 points…I have to find Lindsay Hunter and give her a high five…I have to avoid that dude with the long beard who keeps submitting manuscripts to me…I have to meet the guys from McSweeney’s and have a discussion about irony for 800 points and a bronze coin with Dave Eggers’s face on it…I have to try to remember who that guy is who wrote that poem I liked in that new lit journal…AAAAAARRRRRGGGH! I’ve been stabbed by Jamie Iredell!!

My favorite AWP recap intro ever.

Do we have thoughts on this? I’m not sure. I kinda think I think, “ugh,” but I’m not entirely sure…
pitchfork:

For his next trick, Beck is teaming up with McSweeny’s to release Song Reader, an “album” that features 20 brand new Beck tunes in sheet-music form only.

McSweeney’s Internet Tendency: Raymond Carver’s OKCupid Profile, Edited by Gordon Lish.

My self-summary
I am a writer and poet, one, bear with me here, of the “major” writers of the late 20th century, though just typing that felt desperate. I received a B.A. in English at Humboldt State University, then went on to attend the esteemed Iowa Writers’ Workshop, thus launching my career. I also like to drink.

Hobart 13 contributor, Jimmy Chen!
