AWP is committed to making all reasonable arrangements that will allow conference attendees to participate in conference events. AWP complies with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), and we work to make the conference comfortable and accessible for all participants. We recognize not all disabilities require accommodations, and some are invisible. For the overall comfort of all attendees, AWP considers such accommodations as seating areas to rest between events, quiet rooms, maps in multiple formats, and an onsite contact when help is needed. AWP does not require every person to disclose their disability to us, but given the range and variations of disabilities we may not know how to properly accommodate someone with a disability unless they contact us directly to share their questions and concerns.
2023 Accessibility Services
Many accessibility services require advanced planning for a conference as large as AWP’s. In order to help us better prepare, all requests for accessibility services, equipment, or accommodations should be submitted before the conference. AWP can best meet accessibility needs when requests are sent by Wednesday, February 22, 2023, to Chris Grace at Chris@awpwriter.org. AWP will make every effort to accommodate requests that arrive after February 22.
