2024 Bookfair Stages

The #AWP24 Bookfair Stage is now sold out! If you are interested in being added to a waitlist for bookfair stage events, please email events@awpwriter.org.

Host a reading or panel at the AWP Bookfair! These unique and dynamic events are perfect for book or magazine launch readings, performance and slam events, celebrations, and tributes.

The cost for a seventy-five-minute time slot is $600. To purchase a date & time slot for one of the bookfair stages, please use the event management system.

There are two ways to propose a bookfair stage event. You can create a new bookfair stage event using the green PROPOSE A BOOKFAIR STAGE EVENT button at the bottom of the event management page. Or you can purchase a slot for an existing event already in the event management system that has not been accepted by clicking on the event title to view the event and convert it into a bookfair stage event. Once you have entered all required event information, select the green PURCHASE button at the bottom of the bookfair event’s page to purchase a stage slot for the event.

Bookfair stage events will be reviewed by AWP and must conform to event guidelines. For help creating an event, see the #AWP24 Event Proposal Tutorial for instructions.
