DIY Publishing at AWP & an interview w/ Tom Beckett

So much new news to cover here that I have been remiss about my own announcements!

First, Tom Beckett has posted an email conversation we had recently, and one of the final questions concerns DIY publishing and how it's important, particularly for poetry. Please check that out here. (& thanks again to Tom for his patience and very excellent questions!)

Second, I will be moderating this panel at AWP next weekend in Austin, TX. If you're around, please come say hello!

Saturday, March 11 at AWP 2006 in Austin, Texas
Associated Writing Programs Conference Panel

Saturday, March 11, 10:30-11:45 AM
DIY Publishing: Chapbooks, Micropresses, Webzines, Collectives, Blogs & More.

Jordan Davis (SubPress Collective and the Hat)
Reb Livingston (No Tell Motel and No Tell Motel Books)
Gary Norris (Burn Denver Down Press)
Felicia Sullivan (Small Spiral Notebook)

Moderated by Shanna Compton
(Soft Skull, Half Empty/Half Full, & DIY Publishing Web Ring)

Austin Hilton
Salon B

Five DIY panelists discuss alternatives or supplements to traditional publishing methods,
covering both ideology and the technological basics necessary to publish and distribute
a book, chapbook, magazine, webzine, or blog oneself. Each panelist will describe their
own DIY operation to start the discussion, and then take audience questions.

& lastly, I have an essay on DIY publishing (as well as some poems) coming out in the next issue of the tiny. Look for that later this month!
