The 2014 Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) conference and book fair are almost here! Found Poetry Review editors and featured authors will be participating in two AWP-related events – we look forward to the opportunity to connect with you in person.
AWP PANEL: Project-Driven Publicity for Publishers and Writers
Washington State Convention Center Level 3, Room 3B
Thursday, February 27: 9:00-10:15 a.m. PST
Grab some caffeine and get over your jet lag by joining FPR editors and authors for an early morning panel, “Project-Driven Publicity for Publishers and Writers.”
During this session, Editor-in-Chief Jenni B. Baker and Senior Poetry Editor Beth Ayer will talk about how we used National Poetry Month projects to increase participation in the practice of found poetry and attract new followers to the journal.
E. Kristin Anderson and Jerome Joseph Gentes, participants from our 2013 project, Pulitzer Remix, will detail the initiative’s impact on morale, practice and exposure to new and supportive readers.
At the end of the session, we’ll give you the scoop on what we have in store for National Poetry Month 2014. Oh, and did we mention we’ll have goodies to give away?
AWP OFF-SITE EVENT: Pulitzer Remix/er: A Poetry Reading Featuring Poets and Friends of the Found Poetry Review
A/NT Gallery @ 2045 Westlake Ave. in Seattle, WA, 98121
Friday, February 28: 7:30-9:30 p.m. PST
Following Friday’s sessions, head on over to the A/NT Gallery — Seattle’s only all-volunteer, nonprofit non-juried art gallery — for “Pulitzer Remix/er,” a poetry reading featuring the poets and friends of the Found Poetry Review.
Sit back and relax with some wine as poets from last year’s FPR Pulitzer Remix project read selections from the project and other work. We’ll spend the remainder of the night conviving and imbibing – this is a great opportunity to get to know fellow experimental poets and the FPR editors better.
RSVPs aren’t necessary, but Facebook users can let us know you’re coming by joining our official Pulitzer Remix/er event page.
