free AWP registration for students/faculty


The creative writing M.A./M.F.A. Wilkes programs are once again sponsors for AWP’s (Association of Writers and Writing Programs) national conference to be held in Chicago, IL February 29-March 3, 2012! If you are a Wilkes creative writing student or faculty member there are still a few conferences passes available to you. Hotel and travel is on your own, but the pass will allow you to attend all of the conference panels and readings, as well as the conference bookfair.

Students and faculty must reach Assistant Director Jim Warner via LIVE by Monday, November 11 to claim a pass.

The 2012 AWP Conference & Bookfair takes place February 29-March 3, 2012 in Chicago. This year’s conference Keynote Speaker is Margaret Atwood. See a full list of accepted 2012 readings and panels here

As in years past, Wilkes will have a booth shared with Etruscan Press in the Book Fair. Also, keep your eyes out for the return of the highly acclaimed All Collegiate Slam, hosted by Misterjim and the Wilkes writing programs!
