St. Petersburg was fantastic. SLS is a pretty impressive program made up of wonderful students, faculty and staff. Great to meet and get to know people like Peter Gizzi (whose knowledge of Canlit poetry blew me away), Margaret Sweatman (never met her in Winnipeg), and so many more. The city is outstanding. Bars open until 7am. I will be recovering for the rest of the summer.
Now I'm off to do the Scream Literary Festival. Click here.
