I'm leaving on a jet plane

After a great deal of dithering, even outright deciding against going, I'm excited to say I will, in fact, be attending AWP in Vancouver. I purchased the tickets last night. So let's get together, y'all.

Hey, I'll be there working at the NER/VQR table some of the time. Find me and I'll buy you a drink. Jacob and I are usually milling about by the bar.

Paul said...

Oo, a cocktail party? I'd feel so sophisticated!

Looking forward to meeting everybody.

Robin said...

I'm going too. Will be hanging with the Writers in the Schools folks.

Oliver de la Paz said...

Sweet, Paul. I'll be there too. Hell, with all the bloggers that'll be in Vancouver, we should all have a blog-party!

Paul said...

The blogging world has reached a kind of critical mass and it's at this AWP that it'll probably be fully felt for the first time. Last year I knew of people, Aimee, for example, who blogged but there didn't seem to exist yet the wide reaching connections that now exist. It's going to be really interesting, not to mention fun.

Hey Paul: Glad you are going. Let's make sure to say hi if our paths cross. I'll be reading for Copper Canyon on Saturady afternoon, I believe.
