Poet and NMSU professor Carmen Giménez Smith, who edits both Puerto del Sol and Noemi Press, moderated a panel about gender and publishing for VIDA, the new women-in-the-literary arts organization. Tracy Bowling, a 3rd year MFA Fiction student who edits Uncanny Valley with her husband Mike, participated in the panel along with several other writers, editors, publishers and teachers.
