AWP 2008 Begins

I sidled up to the AWP registration desk in the Hilton at 11:35 am and was told folks couldn't give out any passes till noon. People milled in the ever-filling lobby, hearing the same line from AWP's workers.

After nabbing my badge, I headed into the book fair to find Fringe's table. The bookfair is HUGE this year, with three separate floors of booths. Fringe is on the 3rd floor, in Hall of the Americas II at table 429. The exhibition hall was empty, lonely. I can't wait to see what it will look like tomorrow when hordes of writers descend.

Can't wait to see you.

Good to see you guys there.

New York is now one of my least favorite places. Many New Yorkers I met act like those undergraduates whose daddies send them backpacking across Europe, and return fancying themselves superior to the rest of their classmates.

Now that I belatedly know that Fringe was there, I am even more annoyed that I missed registering before the conference was sold out.
