Hey hey! We are proud to announce that WB’s own Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz has been awarded a prestigious 2013 Amy Clampitt Residency! The award means COA will spend six months living & writing in a “charming, fully furnished, 3-bedroom, 2-story house in Stockbridge, MA” and will receive a $2,500 monthly stipend. SWEET. COA will be touring a bunch before she enters the residency, so check her out when she comes through to your town! And pick up any (or all!) of her WB titles — Dear Future Boyfriend, Hot Teen Slut, Working Class Represent, Oh Terrible Youth and Everything is Everything — from COA herself or at your favorite local or online bookstore! CONGRATS, COA!

And if you are going to AWP 2012, you can meet Cristin at the WRITE BLOODY TABLE in the AWP Book Fair. Write Bloody is proud to be making it’s AWP debut. Come meet WB El Capitan DERRICK BROWN (and WB authors like COA, Robbie Q. Telfer, Tim Stafford, Anis Mojgani, Laura Yes Yes and Stevie Edwards, among others) and buy fresh off the presses WB books! If you ain’t satisfied yet, come to the Friday afternoon AWP panel starring Derrick, Robbie & Cristin! And if you don’t have a AWP badge but still like to party, come on out to the March 2nd WRITE BLOODY WORD PARTY (, featuring readings and performance from a stellar line-up of WB authors. Party starts Elastic Arts at 9:30pm, with $5 cover, $3 discounted rate for students and artists. Open to ALL and BYOB. And the B stands for BUNS.
