Guu'aadzi. Bienvenidos. Welcome!

Keats wrote that this is a "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness” but for those of us planning the 2015 Convention, it's a season of multiple emails and mindful decisions!

I hope you are all getting excited about and preparing for your trip to the 2015 Convention in Albuquerque. This week we completed evaluating all of the roundtable submissions and have sent out notifications with the results. In the upcoming weeks we will be completing our evaluations of the critical and creative submissions and sending out those notifications as well.

Our special workshops have been chosen and will include sessions on creative writing, paths to publication, and finding a job in the business world. It's a tremendous amount of work and planning, but the Central Office staff are wizards at making it all happen; the Convention Committee provides great input and support; and the volunteers who read all the submissions are generous with their time and expertise.

Here in New Hampshire, the fading warmth of autumn has been replaced by the chill of incoming winter, but working on convention details keeps the vision of spring and the convention in sight. Keep checking the convention website for updates and details as we move forward with our plans. Together we'll usher in spring when we gather in Albuquerque!
