Voice over: Blackbird

The AWP conference is a massive gathering of the literary tribes - this year at the Hilton in downtown Atlanta.
I've loaded my ears with discussions and readings, my suitcase with books and journals to share with students.
And something special - I stopped by the Blackbird booth at the book fair to say hello and thanks again for using one of my poems. The staffers said, why don't you record the poem - we're doing that here.
So, two takes at the hotel room recording studio, and "Adam and Eve as Fire and Water" will be available as an audio clip soon at Blackbird

Hi Valerie--It's your old (and I do mean old) Jamestown creative writing teacher. I saw you had a panel at AWP but couldn't find you there. I'm at The Georgia Review now. Drop me an email at
