Thursday, February 9 to Saturday, February 11
Rose Metal Press will have a table at the AWP DC conference and bookfair. Come see us at Table 629 at the bookfair!

Here's our schedule of panels, signings, and off-site readings for AWP DC:

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9

9:00 to 10:15 am
Room 206, Washington Convention Cntr, Level 2
R132. The Long from the Short: Turning Flash Pieces into a Novel, Novella, or Memoir(Abigail Beckel, Kelcey Parker Ervick, Lex Williford, Tyrese Coleman, Tara Laskowski) Intimidated by the daunting feel of a longer project? Or simply looking for a different way to craft a full-length project? Novels-in-flash and memoirs-in-flash are growing in popularity as a perfect marriage of the concision of stand-alone flash pieces and the narrative possibilities of full-length books. Authors and editors of the form offer tips on conceptualizing and crafting a longer work-in-flash, highlighting examples, as well as advice on publishing, marketing, and teaching the form.

10:30 to 11:30 am
Kelcey Parker Ervick and Lex Williford signing LILIANE'S BALCONY, THE BITTER LIFE OF BOZENA NEMCOVA, and SUPERMAN ON THE ROOF at table 629 after the novella-in-flash panel.

Room 101, Washington Convention Cntr, Level 1
S280. Attempting the Impossible: Strategies for Writing Creative Biography(Kathleen Rooney, Kelcey Ervick, Anthony Michael Morena, Sarah Domet, Sarah Blake) Traditional biographers aspire to get out of the way of their subjects in order to render objective portraits. These panelists take the opposite approach, emphasizing the impossibility of ever creating such a portrait and using this not as a failure but as an opportunity for imagination and interactivity. At this event they present examples, research and writing methods, and mixed media techniques for adapting history into literature, offering new modes of presenting the past and the people in it.
