AWP Excitement

Feb 28, 2012Archive, News

We’ll be debuting issue 38.2, the Umbrella Issue, with pieces by our contest winners, a chapbook by Dawn Pendergast, and work by Jon Davis, Lucy Corin, Kate Greenstreet, Joshua Harmon, Donald Platt, and other awesome people.

Be sure to visit our table (We’re A2). We have a lot going on this year!

With a subscription to BWR, receive FREE handwritten pages of JA Tyler’s unpublished and never before seen Stag Country No. 4.

We’re also giving away 100 free copies of Jon Davis’s book, Scrimmage of Appetite (now out of print!). Thanks Jon Davis!!

We’ll have a daytime guerilla reading of sorts on Friday. Please stop by our table sometime on Thursday for information as to where and when (we’ll also tweet at the end of the day). The reading will be full of contributors from BWR 38.1 and 38.2, but almost no gorillas, we promise!  Come see Martin Rock, Jonathan Volk, Jon Davis, Laura-Eve Engel, Farid Matuk, Afton Wilky, Ching-In Chen, Sarah Rose Etter, JA Tyler, Zachary Schomburg, Laura Sims, Joyelle Biele, Kathleen Rooney, Shelly Taylor, Donald Platt, Janice Lee, Megan Martin, Julia Madsen, and Dawn Lawnsinger. Bring an umbrella! This reading may require a bit of shade. Or weaponry in case of gorillas.

Get involved in our collaborative poetry project. Stop by our table and write some lines on the legendary Michael Martone’s typewriter! (The typewriter he used to write his thesis).

On Saturday we’ll have a special, all-day guest who you DO NOT WANT TO MISS. Please stop by the table and say hello. We’d love to meet you, hear about your projects, and answer any BWR related questions.

Follow us on Twitter (@BlackWarriorRev) or Facebook to stay up to date on all our planned and spontaneous AWP activities.

Hope to see you somewhere at AWP!
