Mailing Lists

AWP's mailing lists are the best way to reach writers, teachers, and readers of contemporary literature—those who buy books, attend conferences, enroll in writing programs, or buy software and other supplies or services designated for literary professionals and lovers of literature. Select portions of our postal mailings lists are available for purchase for print mail solicitations only, including our lists of creative writing program directors, individual members, conference attendees, and The Writer's Chronicle subscribers. Our membership and subscriber lists are updated quarterly and can be narrowed down by state or region. AWP does not sell email addresses.
