Small Press Festival at UNC-Greensboro

The SIR crew is going to the 2nd Annual Spring Southeastern Literary Magazine & Small Press Festival April 23rd-26th, 2008 at
UNC Greensboro. We'll be having a table set up for the small press exhibition and will be plugging away at spreading the word about The Southern Indiana Review and RopeWalk Press.

Some great authors are going to be there, including:
Kelly Cherry
Leigh Anne Couch
Michael Chitwood
Michael McFee
Rick Campbell
Quinn Dalton
Jeanne Leiby
John Picard
Warren Rochelle
Andrea Selch
A. Van Jordan
Natasha Trethewey

I am most excited about A. Van Jordan.

Very excited about Ben Percy. He was at SIU-Carbondale before I was, so I never met him. But the ghosts of Ben Percy still lingered in Faner Hall in his absence.

Also excited about Robert Pinsky coming to USI to be the speaker for the RISC showcase. I'm reading a story based on my research on the controversial austism therapy called chelation and a family's struggle with the condition.

The Student Writer's Union is taking submissions all the time for The Aerie, the student literary publication, ALL OF THE TIME, I was told. So, students who are just bursting with talent send your submissions to:
