Denver: AWP & writing bilingually panel this THURS at 4:30pm

In Denver for AWP?
I am!!!

So, I hope to see you at our panel this THURS afternoon, the 8th of April:
Room 207 Colorado Convention Center, Street Level.

Writing in More than one Language: Significance, Opportunities, Challenges, and Audiences.

Katerina Stoykova-Klemer, Ewa Chrusciel, Jennifer K. Dick, Pablo Medina, Simon Ortiz, Luisa Villani: Six bilingual authors of poetry discuss the creative process they employ in writing bilingual works, the challenges of translating between languages, the role of multilingualism in communicating to specific audiences, and how readers with different linguistic backgrounds react to the works. Each author on the panel will read poems in his or her working languages. Audience members will hear readings in Acoma, Bulgarian, English, French, Italian, Polish, and Spanish.

ALSO: Accents Publishing is hosting many signings, including my own at 2pm on Friday afternoon, so I do hope to see a few of you there!!! See their event announcement at:

AND don't forget VERSAL MAGAZINE! With many events at the conference, and all of us editors hanging out at the Versal table from time to time, it is where you can certainly stop in to see me, subscribe to get the exciting next issue of Versal (issue 8) while picking up in person copies of issue 7 (with my translations of Albane Gellé in that issue!) or older ones.
