2020 AWP Conference
March 4th – 7th, 2020
San Antonio, TX
Update: Why We’re Choosing Not to Attend #AWP20
We are extremely sad to announce that we will not be attending AWP in San Antonio this year. This was a very hard choice for us, but between a bout of normal flu in the office and our concerns for the wellbeing of our staff, we feel this is the best choice. We hope those who attend stay safe and have a wonderful time—and we’ll see you in KC next year!
Because we won’t be attending the #AWP20 bookfair in San Antonio and our annual AWP presence accounts for a significant portion of our promotion and circulation, we’re offering subscription and single-issue discounts as part of #AWPvirtualbookfair through Monday, March 9th. To receive this limited-time 35% discount, click here for single issues (currently $8.50) and here for subscriptions (currently $14.00).
