2021 Bookfair Stages

Host a reading or panel at AWP’s Bookfair. These unique and dynamic events are perfect for book or magazine launch readings, performance and slam events, celebrations, and tributes. For the 2021 AWP Conference & Bookfair, AWP is offering a digital version of the Bookfair Stage event. All #AWP21 Bookfair Stage events will be pre-recorded prior to the dates of the conference in March 2021, and will be available for attendees to view on-demand on the virtual conference platform for the entirety of #AWP21.

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 Submitting an Event Proposal tutorial video for instructions.
