Hello, August. Somewhere between frantic laundry sessions, unwritten-syllabus-related panic attacks, questions from a four year old genius, and moonings over baby, our one year anniversary in Akron slipped by quietly.
It's hard to be in denial as I start entering upcoming events into my Outlook calendar. This fall I'm doing two talks at BGSU: a lecture on the academic job market in September, and a Winter Wheat session on food writing. Yes, I will be bringing food (to the latter).
I'm also in a tizzy because our NEOMFA proposal was accepted for AWP 07, proving that spending eight hours writing and picking at a proposal isn't completely ridiculous, just slightly. I vow to put the MOD in Event Moderator.
No poetry readings on the schedule yet. Am I turning into an...academic?
