Crowds of people visit exhibitor tables in a large convention center with a high ceiling

2023 Bookfair


An annual showcase of hundreds of exhibitors, AWP’s bookfair is the nation’s largest marketplace for independent literary presses and journals, creative writing programs, writing conferences and centers, and literary arts organizations. Secure an exhibit space for your press or organization to reach over thousands of writers, readers, teachers, and literary tastemakers. The bookfair runs concurrently with AWP’s annual conference and is open to all registered conference attendees.

AWP operates the bookfair as close to a break-even budget as possible. We do this—and keep our rates as low as possible—in support of smaller organizations and presses to help them collaborate and reach conference attendees.

We look forward to seeing you March 8 – 11, 2023 for #AWP23, where you can celebrate literary community, conduct business, and enjoy Seattle!
