Annual Conference & Bookfair

Each year, AWP holds its Annual Conference & Bookfair in a different city to celebrate the authors, teachers, students, writing programs, literary centers, and publishers of that region. This has been impacted by COVID-19. Our 2019 conference in Portland, OR attracted 15,000 participants and there were over 700 bookfair exhibitors. AWP is now the largest literary conference and independent literary marketplace in North America.
