Seeking Volunteers for Conference and Bookfair

September 26, 2017

The Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) is holding its 2018 AWP Conference & Bookfair at the Tampa Convention Center & Marriott Tampa Waterside on March 7–10, 2018. The largest literary conference in North America, AWP typically draws about 12,000 attendees to 500 readings, panels, and craft lectures. The book fair hosts more than 800 presses, journals, and literary organizations from around the world.

Jewish Currents would like to have a table at the book fair to enable us tell the literary community about our publications and attract new audiences and writers. We have the budget to pay for the exhibition space and send down magazines, books and other material, but not to staff it or pay for staff accommodations.

We are therefore reaching out to the Jewish Currents community to ask whether anyone plans to attend the 2018 AWP Conference and would be willing to staff our exhibit for a few hours. If so, please contact as soon as possible.
