 "We all write poems; it is simply that poets are the ones who write in words."

                                                 --John Fowles, The French Lieutenant's Woman

This will be a quick note as I am heading down the conference rabbit hole this morning. I'll try to check in every morning and let you know how things are going. And I'll also try to post links to our evening Zoom readings (7 p.m., EST), which are open to the public via Facebook Live. You do not need to have a Facebook account to access the readings.

Tonight's reader is Kerrin McCadden, the author of American Wake (Black Sparrow Press). Her debut collection, Landscape with Plywood Silhouettes, won the Vermont Book Award and the New Issues Poetry Prize. Her chapbook, Keep This to Yourself, was awarded the Button Poetry Prize. McCadden has received a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship and the Sustainable Arts Foundation Writing Award. Her poems have appeared recently in American Poetry ReviewLos Angeles Review, New England Review, and Ploughshares. She is associate director of the Conference on Poetry and Teaching at the Frost Place and associate poetry editor at Persea Books. She teaches at the Center for Technology, Essex, and lives in South Burlington, Vermont.
