Betty and Veronica attend the AWP

I just happened upon Jim Behrle’s blog, and now I’m going to be addicted. Please allow me to introduce the “Stone Cold Poetry Bitches,” currently attending the AWP conference.

Says Mr. Behrle: “Don’t let some nobody sitting behind a book table at AWP make you feel like you got to buy their new book just because they’re sitting there signing books and you feel sorry for them. If they’re giving you the eye and you don’t want to buy, just say ‘Jim Behrle is sending me his copy of your book: with stickers and urine and shit colored magic markers all over it.’ That’ll clam up their ambition hole!”
