This summer, I’m taking a two-month road trip, doing a few readings, playing lots of disc golf, hanging out with cool people. You can read more about that here.
I can’t bear to leave this beautiful blog behind, so to keep me in the loop, I’m gonna meet up with a writer at each of my major stops. I wanna experience this strange city, learn more about the writer, and get a sense of how they live in this place.
And then, I’ll report back here with audio/video, a mini-interview, and a recap by me, plus anything else the writer might wanna feature.
So far, here’s the lineup:
Akron, Ohio: Nick Sturm, Mike Krutel, Sammy Snodgrass
Chicago, Illinois: James Tadd Adcox
Tuscaloosa, Alabama: Katy Gunn
Atlanta, Georgia: Jamie Iredell
I’m also looking to add a few more writers, if any of you have suggestions/requests for the series (MI, KY, TN, NC, and WV are other possible locations).
Also, to help raise money for the series (like buying the writers’ dinner, etc.), I’m doing a poem-postcard fundraiser for the trip. Here is more info on that if you’re interested.
THX FOR BEING SO NEAT
