AWP was big and shiny, smelled like a cinnamon roll, and filled with a whole lot of writers. The ratio of those with glasses to those without glasses was considerably higher than it is in the general population. Denver is clean (by Tucson standards) and the liquor there is expensive (again, also by Tucson standards).
Sonora Review hustled nearly all the issues we brought to AWP. Hope ya’ll new readers enjoy! We met a lot of beautiful beautiful people. Also, I think we non-violently settled the quarrel between SR and Black Warrior Review. Ander Monson tried to set up a bowl off. We declined. How bout a drink off instead?
We’re bringing over 500 issues to AWP. Get them at discounted, nearly triple double zero price-o-zero dollaridge deals. It’s a gonga. It’s a sleet steal. It’s Denver. We’ll all be loony as Disney characters on acid in a movie theater made of ecstasy tablets in a city built on cocaine. We’ll be sleepy and look
