• I don’t construct books, I sometimes think, so much as grow them, like mushrooms, in the dark.

Before the parade of poets, receptions, readings, and the crush of books that is AWP 2015 fades into memory, let’s immortalize it. Take your favorite memory—be it the most memorable character, favorite bit of overheard MFA earnestness, or reconnection with old friends—and spin it into something more. Perhaps you’ll write that rebuttal to MFA vs. NYC you’ve been hanging onto, or about your new BFF Karen Russell…

If you were wise enough to stay home this past weekend, I feel satire is in order. Surely, if anything was worthy of a Christopher Guest treatment, it’s AWP.
