Corporate and Foundation Support

The AWP Conference & Bookfair brings together writers, students, teachers, small press publishers, and literary arts nonprofits. Since 1973, the conference has served as a gateway for writers to gather, building relationships and forging connections that nurture their artistic and professional lives. Sponsorship offers you a unique place at the heart of this literary extravaganza with multiple opportunities and benefits:

  • Marketing to raise the national profile of your school or program
  • Registration bundles that allow your staff, faculty, and students to participate
  • Special sponsor exhibit areas that put you at the center of the action
  • Recognition as an AWP Conference & Bookfair sponsor on the AWP website, in The Writer’s Chronicle, across all AWP social media platforms, and on the conference homepage
  • Access to “up-close-and-personal” VIP virtual dance parties and networking events

We offer sponsorships at multiple levels and are also happy to help design custom packages that fit your school or organization.
