2019 Conference & Bookfair Registration

Registration includes admission to AWP’s bookfair, meetings, panels, readings, and public receptions for the duration of the conference period. Meals, lodging, and travel are not included. Hotel & Travel information on lodging at AWP’s official conference hotels is scheduled to be released on August 13, 2018.

The purchase of a bookfair table or booth includes two complimentary Bookfair Setup Access (BSA) registrations, which also allow full access to the conference and bookfair.

Students, faculty, and staff of sponsoring institutions should check with their program or organization before purchasing a registration on their own. You may be eligible for a complimentary sponsor registration.

Early bird registration opens August 1!

All conference registrations must be purchased online or onsite with a credit or debit card. We do not accept checks or cash. All sales are final and nonrefundable.
