Last Wednesday through Sunday, I was an attending author at the International Conference of the Fantastic in the Arts, my favorite conference to attend. I have met wonderful people there over the years and it’s always a pleasure to see them at our annual gathering and catch up on their lives and writing. And as usual, I met a few new people who are also really cool. I hosted a reading by Greg Bechtel and John Kessel. I read with Mike Allen and Ellen Klages. I also read poetry and hosted a poetry panel.
Which brings me to another announcement:
I have edited a poetry chapbook titled Words for Worlds featuring regular poets from the ICFA poetry panels. It contains work by Bruce Boston, Bryan Dietrich, Donna Hooley, Sandra Lindow, David Lunde, Donald Riggs, Marge Simon, Mary Turzillo, Gina Whisker, and myself. It’s a great little collection of speculative poetry. It is published and available at Porkbelly Press.
