This Just In; and a Protest Sent to AWP
I'll bring a few of these along with me to the AWP Conference. The Divisible Field is a 31-page chapbook reprint of poems that appeared in the special anthology issue "A Day's Work Done," Volume XXII, No. 1 of the Legal Studies Forum, a law review published at the West Virginia University College of Law. Professor James R. Elkins is the editor of Legal Studies Forum.
My eternal gratitude to him.
These are beautifully done.
I will have more to say about this issue of Legal Studies Forum.
I am very upset that the AWP Conference in New York City has "sold out" (their words, not mine) and that no on-site registration will be allowed. This last-minute change in policy--made with no prior notice to anyone--obviously discriminates against the "paycheck-to-paycheck" writers (like myself), students, and friend's-sofa-sleeping, young, adjunct faculty-types whose attendance is NOT reimbursed by their employer-college.
As I understand it, this means I will not be able to register Marcia on-site as a "spouse" at AWP and will not be able to buy a registration for my daughter (a student at Eugene Lang College/The New School in NYC).
I've e-mailed my protest to AWP and hope you will, too.
