AWP 2009, Proposal Deadline
Thu 24 Apr 2008
1 May is the deadline for submitting proposals to next year's AWP Conference, which will be held in Chicago, 11-14 February 2009.

Each year, AWP holds its Annual Conference in a different region of North America in order to celebrate the outstanding authors, teachers, writing programs, literary centres, and small press publishers of that region. The Annual Conference typically features 300 presentations: readings, lectures, panel discussions, and Forums plus hundreds of book signings, receptions, dances, and informal gatherings. The conference attracts more than 5,000 attendees and more than 400 publishers. It's one of the biggest and liveliest literary gatherings in North America.

The 2009 conference will take place at the Hilton Chicago.

Any NAWE members wishing to put forward proposals are very welcome to liaise via the NAWE office. Please contact Paul Munden or Hilary Jenkins.
