Poets & Writers Spill Their
Worst Reading Experiences

“Writing is—on the professional level—an assault upon those sacred gatekeepers of agents, publishers, and editors. What Could Possibly Go Wrong? is a memorable testament to what occurs when an author is fortunate enough to finally exult in an even more terrifying experience: to meet the public you think you’re writing for.”–John King, author of Guy Psycho and the Ziggurat of Shame and host of The Drunken Odyssey: A Podcast About the Writing Life.
