Also, just a quick note…

Also, just a quick note that I'll be coordinating some DesiLit meet-ups at the upcoming AWP conference in Chicago. We did this last year, and had a lot of fun meeting up for two dinners and some drinks with other desi writers (at what's still a predominantly white literary / fiction conference). I also compiled a list of panels that desi writers were on, or that concerned S. Asian lit., so that we could support each other at the conference -- I think people found that helpful, so I'll be doing it again. And depending on how many people are coming, I may host a DesiLit event at my home in nearby Oak Park -- maybe a potluck dinner or something like that, at either the start or end of the conference. I live about 30 min. from the conference site.

If you're attending AWP and especially if you're presenting, please drop me a line with your details! Name, short bio, panels you're on or readings you're doing, dates you'll be in town, cell phone so we can find you. :-)
