Whew. Well, that was fun. Let’s take a moment to pause and do some deep breathing post-AWP. Go water your plants. Go through your voicemail messages. Make some soup for your neighbor who just broke her leg. All in the service of preparing for tomorrow, March 6th, at 4:30 PM when Roosevelt University will be host to one of the most riveting, heart-pounding battles of all time. I speak, of course of the Scott Blackwood/Kathleen Rooney LITERARY DEATHMATCH.
Who will emerge the victor? Will it be Scott “Don’t call me Whiting” Blackwood, head honcho of the Roosevelt MFA program, and award winning novelist and short story writer?
Will it be Kathleen “Also, best not to call me Whiting” Rooney, Roosevelt MFA Visiting Professor, Rose Metal Press co-founder, poet AND creative non-fiction master?
This once in a lifetime reading…er…LITERARY DEATHMATCH happens tomorrow, March 6th at 4:30 PM in Auditorium Building Room 406. Be There!
