1. Starting in August, I've the honor of being Visiting Assistant Professor of English, creative writing, and women's studies at University of Wyoming. Hats a'plenty, and I'm already driving friends and fam nuts with my mid-conversation syllabus epiphanies. Do not call me, unless you want to hear me say, "yes, the weather is very--Judith Halberstam! That's it!" If you don't know much about UWyo's MFA program, check it out! The faculty, huzzah! And guess who will be among this year's visitors. Salman Rushdie will be here in September, and Joy Williams will be here all year long as Eminent Writer in Residence. Swoon worthy.
2. A juicy parley on the Gurlesque over at Johannes's blog. I'm holding my tongue a bit, waiting for the thrillsville anthology that Arielle Greenberg & Lara Glenum are editing (Saturnalia 2009), and since the third segment of my conversation with Arielle will be out in another week or so. Suffice to say, while I'm not in agreement with all parties (and quite befuddled by some of the comments), I'm enjoying the lively investigation. The ever-smarty K. Lorraine Graham is thinking on it, too, and Jilly Dybka talks about what her work has going on that's most Mars.
3. Hair hats, as the above. Alissa sent me this.
