AWP Boston was a whirlwind of a weekend! It was an amazing event that my birthday happened right in the middle of it! To celebrate myself I bought, and was given, 27 beautiful literary presents! What amazing people as writers and artists out there! I am so happy to support and celebrate them as well!
20: The Missouri Review: Fractured Volume 30 Number 4 2007 (I got it for the Survey of the Graphic Memior, titled “Fluency in Form” by Lisa Hoashi)
21: BluestemSpring 2012 Vol. XXIII No. I. I was unfamiliar with this journal, and henceforth totally judged this book by its cover. I still don’t quite understand what it is—partial tents? silver condoms? plastic jellyfish? idunno
27: Seeing all my friends I do not usually get to. Meeting new friends. Inspiration to be a better and more complicated, yet accessible writer. Working my heart with so much love—how could this not be my 27th gift?
