About

Each year, AWP holds its annual conference and bookfair in a different city to celebrate the authors, teachers, writing programs, literary centers, and publishers of that region. The conference features more than 500 readings, lectures, and panel discussions, 800 presses, publishers, and other literary organizations in the bookfair, and hundreds of book signings, receptions, dances, and informal gatherings. It is the largest literary conference in North America.

Upcoming conference locations include Washington, DC (February 8-11, 2017) and Tampa, Florida (March 7-10, 2018).
