2023 Bookfair Stages

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.

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 #AWP23 Event Proposal Tutorial for instructions.

The cost for a seventy-five-minute time slot is $450 for start times before 12:00 p.m. and $550 starting after 12:00 p.m. The reservation includes use of a microphone and sound system, along with a listing of your event on AWP’s website and in the conference program.
