Billy Collins in my University? More likely than you think.

Apparently (news to me!) poet laureate Billy Collins will be participating in my University’s annual writer’s conference. He’ll be doing a reading in the PAC at a time conveniently scheduled at the same time as my Humanities class, where I’ll be learning about… something. Damn.

Word is he’s also scheduled to give a workshop to 10 very lucky boys and girls. I suppose I’ll have whip up an “I deserve to do this because…” essay and select two of my favorite (or should I just pick my published?) poems. I put odds on lit-track English majors – specifically seniors or grad students – getting picked for this. But I’m not going to not try, dammit.

So Augusta State really has some cool stuff going on if you pay attention.
