The Authors Are Coming!

“That was a big sigh,” he said.

“I know. I was just thinking that it’s been quite a while since I posted a blog on my website,” I answered.

“Just tell them the Authors Are Coming.”

Because. Yes. As Director of Midwest Writers Workshop, that’s what I (and my hardworking team) do: we bring talented authors, talent-seeking agents, and talent-helping editors to the campus of Ball State University, in Muncie, Indiana.

So since my last blog post my life has been THIS

registrations, facilities, room assignments, emailing, scheduling, calling, emailing, hotel, travel, food, menus, parking, emailing, publicity, tweets, emailing, organizing, rescheduling, book orders, merchandise orders, signage, lists, more lists, emailing, session notes, equipment, bowling party, welcome totes, donations, magazines, emailing…….

Oh, yes, and then there was THIS: “Literary Citizenship in a Digital Age,” the class I taught during second summer term at Ball State. The {amazingly talented} students in the class are the interns for this year’s MWW, functioning as assistants to the literary agents. Really, so. much. fun. to be back in the classroom. My last teaching experience was as an instructor for English Composition courses at Ball State {____} years ago.

I reckon juggling all THIS doesn’t make me a slackard that I haven’t posted in a while…

Therefore, I give you my blog post announcing THIS:

Homer Simpson Authors Coming!

July 21-23, 2016
