It was early but people came anyway: Thanks to everyone who woke up in time to make it to our our AWP Conference panel, the The Flash Sequence: A Reading and Discussion!

The panel was born out of the just-published flash sequence anthology Nothing to Declare, edited by Robert Alexander — who unfortunately couldn’t make it to AWP. Fortunately, Nickole Brown stepped in to moderate.

I read along with fellow contributors  Sonia Greenfield (Boy with a Halo at the Farmer’s Market), Irena Praitis (Straws and Shadows), Jenn Koiter, and Debra Marquart (The Horizontal World: Growing Up Wild in the Middle of Nowhere). And two other contributors, Kathleen McGookey and Lucas Southworth, joined us in the audience.

Hope everyone had as great an AWP as I did — See you next year in DC!
