“If they’re doing something aesthetically with the cover, they must be doing something aesthetically with the work” a quote from Bobby Fischer as we discuss how to choose what to buy at AWP….
I recorded this podcast at AWP a writer’s convention up in Boston. With me are three guys who have graduated from the MFA creative writing program at William Paterson University. Their names are linked to their twitter or facebook accounts,
We talked about some of the people we met and magazines or books we bought and enjoyed and I tried to find links to all of their sites listed below….the podcast does cut short at the end while reading A Ring of Muscle because I tried shaking my ipad as it was saving for some reason….
Prime Magazine -the interactive online magazine that works really well on your tablets
the Bill Murray T-shirt that Charlie wore (couldn’t find the exact one but hers a bunch)
Tin House Magazine Matthew Dickman is the poetry editor
Balloon Pop Outlaw Black I looked up the author….she is really cute
Intentional Walk Review the online magazine of sports writing that advertised on stress baseballs
Bull Magazine a magazine of men’s fiction
Hobart Press the press that gave us whisky
Punk Hostage Press the press that imitates book covers for their books
Openletter press the press that has great translations
Idiot’s Books I also found this press that I didn’t mention on the podcast but I bought their book for my girlfriend and now she reallllllly likes me
