We’re going to AWP!! This year the Association of Writers & Writing Programs is having its annual conference in downtown LA. Together with our sister press, Lucid Moose Lit, we will be stationed at booth 857 at the conference mega Book Fair on Thursday, March 31st through Saturday, April 2nd. We will have books, author signings, and more. SGP authors Raquel Reyes-Lopez, JL Martindale, and Daniel McGinn will be joining myself, Sarah Thursday, and Nancy Lynée Woo, with additional guests, such as K. Andrew Turner and Beth McIlvaine. This is a huge event that requires paid admission, but if you are one of the over 12,000 people attending, we’d love to have you come by and say hello!
Here’s a little snippet of what is AWP from their website:
“The AWP Conference & Bookfair is an essential annual destination for writers, teachers, students, editors, and publishers. Each year more than 12,000 attendees join our community for four days of insightful dialogue, networking, and unrivaled access to the organizations and opinion-makers that matter most in contemporary literature. The 2015 conference featured over 2,000 presenters and 550 readings, panels, and craft lectures. The bookfair hosted over 800 presses, journals, and literary organizations from around the world. AWP’s is now the largest literary conference in North America. Join us in Los Angeles in 2016 to celebrate the best of what contemporary literature has to offer.”
