Today: Denise Duhamel at Emory!

Duhamel reads tonight at Emory University.  The reading starts at 8pm in the multipurpose room at Few Hall. Parking is available in the Peavine Lot. To get to Few Hall, turn left out of Peavine and walk along Eagle Row, passing the Greek houses. Few Hall is the second dorm on your right at the end of the Greek houses.

In other news, the Limp Wrist sponsored workshop will not take place on Friday.  (Blame the economy!)

WELCOMES

W.F  ROBYWFRoby

 

You probably remember W.F. Roby; he was one of the final three contestants in Project Verse.  I am happy to announce that Roby is going to be the token straight guy in the Limp Wrist family. He is taking over the responsibilities of webmaster, and he’ll lend a helping eye in the submission arena as well.  Stop by his Facebook page to say Happy Birthday and Congrats!

Update Time: Limp Wrist to Fundraising to Project Verse and More!

(1) I was happy with the current status of fundraising for Limp Wrist until this weekend when I received word that $750 is not the fee for the Juniper part of the scholarship. The total amount is $1,030– $750 covers tuition and meals plus $280 to cover a dorm room for the scholarship recipient.

With this in mind, I want to remind you that tomorrow is the last day to enter in the Limp Wrist raffle. Click here for the details and for pictures of the items. I’m very happy to say the funds from the raffle are TAX DEDUCTIBLE and go to support the inaugural Limp Wrist Scholarship.

(2) Ellen Bass, Maureen Seaton, and Dorianne Laux have blurbed Stealing Fire.

Stealing Fire is, by turns, delightful, ironic, witty, stabbing, sobering, intoxicating. I didn’t want it to end. ~ Ellen Bass, author of The Human Line

The ordering process for Stealing Fire is going to be a tad bit different than originally mentioned; however, it will still be easy! After covering the production costs of the chapbooks, all funds raised will go to the Limp Wrist scholarship fund.

(3) If you are on Facebook, join the cool kids in checking out:

(4) I am participating in Dana Guthrie Martin’s FaBoStaMe 2009. I plan to use my 30 updates in 30 minutes to announce something big.

(5) I have started consulting with poetess Stacie Boschma on an Atlanta Project. I love that she is just as thrilled as I am about it. This is not the big announcement that is mentioned in #4. This will stay secret for a bit longer as it is to die for.

(6) Project Verse should be kicking off in late April. I received 39 applications, each ranging between 15 to 19 pages. I am giving each application the attention it needs; therefore, it is very time consuming.
