Happy Friday! We’re gearing up for the Association of Writers and Writing Programs conference next week and looking forward to our Thursday evening mingle with Ecotone, the Common, Archipelago Books, New Directions, and the New York Review of Books. Please join us at Mackenzie’s Scotch Pub in Minneapolis.
If it’s your first conference, Bustle offers these tips for how to avoid literary burnout. Among them, locate your favorite lit mags and presses at the book fair in advance (we’ll be at tables 1018 & 1020 with the Ecotone crew) and keep an eye on Twitter for #AWP15 (and of course follow us: @lookoutbooks).
