My colleagues are very encouraging and usually attend each other’s panels. This conference I made a conscious effort to attend panels where my co-workers were presenting. Sorry I missed yours, Laura Carroll and Steve Weathers.
The first was Deb Williams’ creative prose reading.
Steve Sherwood, TCU, was the chair. Nick is on the committee. Trudi read an engaging story.
Deb Williams and Sherry Rankin (winner of the Literature Pedagogy Award on Saturday!) engage with others while waiting for the session to begin.
Everyone is interested and listening.
There are some last minute preparations to make.
I didn’t take pictures during the readings, so here we are as we are finished. Folks are getting up, talking with presenters, and to each other, and generally being engaged.
