The busy season

This has been one of the hottest, stickiest, most uncomfortable summers I can remember in Atlanta. There was really no spring; we went from a fairly cold winter straight into sweltering heat. I cannot wait for fall and cooler temperatures to arrive.

My schedule is also becoming hectic, too. The Decatur Book Festival on Labor Day weekend kicks off my "busy season," which is followed by the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville, Atlanta Queer Literary Festival, the annual Voices Carry reading and Red Clay Writers Conference at Kennesaw State University (check out the nifty video for the conference at the website). I'll also be hosting two Poetry Atlanta Presents... events including one featuring Finishing Line Press poets and another featuring National Poetry Series winner Colin Cheney and Ginger Murchison. Updates on all this soon.

I'll also be trying to finish the first draft of the Conquering Venus sequel and will start preliminary editing with Kodac Harrison on the next Java Monkey Speaks anthology from Poetry Atlanta Press due out next summer.

Not sure, but you'll be the first to know. Or the second. :)

You GO, Collin! See you at DBF. Oh wait, see you at my house on Sunday to plan for it! Have fun at Nashville, at Red Clay... et tout.
