On February 9, we co-sponsored a reading with Indiana Review and Muzzle Magazine in Washington, D.C. for AWP! Thank you to these wonderful lit mags, Busboys and Poets for the warm and inviting space (it was chilly outside!), the supportive audience, and, of course, the poets. Each poet was a stunner and each poem a living moment.
Look at this amazing crowd! It was a packed house.
Stevie Edwards, Editor-in-Chief of Muzzle Magazine, introduces the poets.
Raena Shirali reads from her book Gilt.
Jennifer Givhan reads from her book Landscape with Headless Mama, winner of the Pleiades Press Editors Prize for Poetry.
Our very own Editor Maya Marshall promotes our awesome mag and introduces the next reader.
Indiana Review is pretty cool, too. Check out that cover.
Sam Sax: "The plate of light I reach my hand through and feel the pulse."
Kaveh Akbar reads from his book Portrait of the Alcoholic.
Fatimah Asghar: "My people I follow you like constellations."
A round table of literature that makes the world a better place.
See you later...as in, the next AWP! Y'all take care now.
