Tucson at AWP

Tucson literary organizations will be in Atlanta for AWP. Don't forget about Tucson Heat: A Big Sexy Reading

Thursday, March 1 8-1030 pm
The Midtown Tavern
554 Piedmont Ave

Reading will be: Deborah Bernhardt, Deborah Fries, Sawako Nakayasu, Joshua Marie Wilkinson, and many others from the Tucson literary community.
We invite the AWP conference attendees to come hang out with us at the Midtown Tavern in downtown Atlanta, only six blocks walking distance from the Hilton. Here's the Midtown Tavern's web site for directions and contact info: Midtown Tavern in Atlanta GA.


Casa Libre and the clan above are going to the AWP (Associated Writing Programs) Conference in Atlanta Georgia and this amazing lineup of talented poets has agreed to read for the organizations listed above. The reading was organized to help stimulate awareness and bring attention to our burgeoning literary scene here in the beautiful southwest desert. Tucson has a unique scene that continues to attract the attention of our nation's brightest literary stars, and we aim to keep it that way!

Directors of each literary group sponsoring the reading will be there to chat with folks about what they do in Tucson. We'll all be happy to also speak on behalf of organization's who could not send a representative this year, such as POG, Chax Press, CUE, The Tucson Poetry Festival, and others. Tucson literary organizations have been working together for the first time ever since as far back as April of last year. They are making a dedicated effort to join forces, cooperate with schedules and audience sharing, cosponsor each others' events and support each others' projects by volunteering and helping advertise.

Remember to visit our tables in the AWP bookfair too! We will all be in the same area. Call Ann or Kristen for more information 520-325-9145 or stop by the Tucson Lit Orgs Booths in the Book Fair at AWP in the 270 BLOCK!!!
