I am going to AWP for the first time this year! I'm not sure what to expect, but I'm looking forward to reconnecting with friends from the Sewanee Writers' Conference and NYU. Also looking forward to visiting Seattle! I did an exchange program there through the Network of Sacred Heart Schools when I was in the seventh grade, but I haven't been back since. I remember being terrified on the elevator to the top of the Space Needle. To be fair though, I was terrified most of the time. I'm excited to explore the city as an adult, and for some good, lit-nerdy fun.
