BlazeVOX @ AWP 2013
Hot Dog, I'll see you in Boston! 
Geoffrey Gatza

Hurray! I will be going to AWP but without a table or booth. Apparently I was 6 months too late to sign up for either. It's a great sign that this will be an event not to miss. I will be presenting at a panel on the future of the small press. Information is below. I will be roaming all around the book fair, attending panels and lurking in smoking area just outside the Hynes :-) So hurray, if you see me, jump on out and say hi! If time permits lets get coffee! I hope to meet as many people as I can. 

iPad Poetry Readings from AWP: 



So I lost out on setting up a poetry reading for BlazeVOX at AWP. But that is AOK, there is better technology out there than just a dirty bar in Boston :-) Our plan is to do short, 5 to 7 minutes, of poetry readings around the Hynes convention center for our webpage. I'll be recording poets during the event, so if you are interested, please let me know and I'll set up a schedule


If you are a BX author and will be at AWP and should wish to do a reading, email me at editor@blazevox.org or give a call and we'll meet up and read from your book, you can read new poems too. Hurray!

Cooperative Publishing and the Future of the Small Press

Time: 12:00 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.

R180. Cooperative Publishing and the Future of the Small Press. (Martin Woodside, Derick Burleson, Jacqueline Kudler, Chris Baron, Geoffrey Gatza) Traditional literary publishing is being upended by new developments in media and technology. In this panel, representatives from Sixteen Rivers, City Works, BlazeVOX, and Calypso Editions discuss the role cooperatives have, may, and will play in the shifting publishing landscape. The panel explores how various cooperative models help reimagine ways for the 21st-century small press to thrive, sustain literary communities, introduce new writers, and keep great literature in circulation. Learn More
