What a whirlwind of an AWP weekend! For all of you who made it to Boston, we hope you had the most amazing time, met your favorite writers, met new favorite writers, and lost yourself in beautiful, beautiful printed wor(l)ds!

So to Speak had a tremendous time! Thank you to everyone who stopped by our table to introduce yourself! We loved meeting you so much and sharing our feminist mission!

Our offsite reading was a huge success and total blast! Moira Egan read from her book Spin. Julie Marie Wade, introduced by our nonfiction editor Chrissy Widmayer, read from her surreal memoir Small Fires. I (Sheila, poetry editor) introduced the fabulous Danielle Pafunda. She read “Mommy V” poems from her newest, Manhater, new poems, and one titled “I Can’t Publish This.” The magical Lara Glenum, introduced by our assistant nonfiction editor Jess Szalay, read from her newest book Pop Corpse, a contemporary retelling of Little Mermaid fable with vernacular swing and swoosh.

Feel like you where there with us with these lovely photos!

P.S. Remember we are open for fiction, nonfiction, and poetry submissions until this Friday, March 15th, midnight Eastern Standard Time. Our first and most exciting visual art contest will be open for submissions through April 15th. Download the Hybrid Book Arts competition call here.
