AWP Conference 2014

Each year, the Association of Writers & Writing Program hosts its annual Bookfair, where writers and readers come together to celebrate publishers, teachers, and students of literature and writing. Over 12,000 participated in the 2013 conference, dubbing it the largest gathering of writers and readers in North America. The AWP will host its conference from February 28 to March 1 at the Washington State Convention Center & Sheraton Seattle Hotel. A lot of excellent literary journals will be on exhibition, including Witness Magazine, edited by David Armstrong (author of the upcoming book Going Anywhere), along with Green Mountains Review and its editor Jacob White (author of Being Dead in South Carolina). For those interested in contests, AWP has many opportunities for writers to submit work, including the AWP Award Series, the George Garrett Award, the Small Press Publisher Award, the Intro Journals Project, the WC&C Scholarship Competition, and the National Program Directors’ Prize. Though the preregistration deadline for the conference has passed, onsite registration will begin February 26.
