Other Words Literary Conference in Tampa 2018

Madville’s First Official Conference

The Other Words Conference was held at the University of Tampa, October 11-13, 2018, which turned out to be unfortunate as Hurricane Michael blew through the Florida Panhandle on October 10. This meant many writers who had planned to attend simply couldn’t get there. Still, Tampa was unaffected, and the airplanes flew, so Kim and Jacqui attended and represented Madville.

Networking

These events are largely about networking, and we sat prominently with a table at the book fair, where we offered our first two titles, An Englishman in Texas and Gunshot, Peacock, Dog. Rick Campbell, author of Gunshot, Peacock, Dog, was on hand to sign copies. In addition, Kim spoke on the subject of publishing.

Madville Attended AWP 2018–sort of

We were there… sort of

Madville Publishing, LLC, was not quite an entity when Kim attended AWP in Tampa in 2018. The conference for Creative Writing Programs is a huge annual event, that creative writers should all attend at least once. 2018 was no different, and Kim saw many of her writing friends in Tampa in 2018. She was either at the The Texas Review Press Booth, or the Goliad Review & Press table, both presses where she worked at one time.
 
Kim’s schedule at AWP 2018:
Thursday 3:00 – 5:00 PM
Author signing–Curt Eriksen, A Place of Timeless Harmony
(Kim had the pleasure of editing this book and doing the layout and design for it.)
