Ashland at the AWP

Several literary Ashlanders attended the Association of Writers & Writing Program meeting in Seattle, February 26 – March 1, 2014. Here are their six-word summaries.

    Angela Howe Decker, author of Splendid Catastrophe: “Hordes of writers talking, reading, hip-hopping.”

    Amy MacLennan, author of Weathering and The Fragile Day: “Fabulous. Overwhelming. Inspiring. FRIENDS. Hip-Hop-Panel-Awesomeness. Suitcase.”

    Kasey Mohammad, Professor of Creative Writing at SOU: “A guy in a Sleestak costume.”

    Lindsay Rose Moore, editor of 2014 The West Wind Review: “Forgot to eat, because of books.”

    Midge Raymond, Ashland Creek Press: “a lively session on book marketing.”

    Craig Wright, Professor of Creative Writing at SOU: “Mythical land where books still matter.”

    Mallory Young, West Wind Review staff, “Excited, overstimulated, interested, but also malnourished.”

    John Yunker, Ashland Creek Press: “eco-lit, with Ann Pancake, JoeAnn Hart, Mindy Mejia, and Gretchen Primack.”
