I met Nicky Tiso briefly at the Halpern/Iijima/Williams reading at the Public School, and found later that he was sharing a panel with my boy Matthew O'Malley. An MFA student at Minnesota (I think?) and a onetime student at Evergreen (a student of David Wolach's? I think?). Anyway, he blogs at Grand Hotel Abyss, and his musing on the conference can be read here.
