2019 Conference T-shirts
AWP invited our artistic members in the Pacific Northwest (defined for our purposes to include Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, the Yukon, and Alaska) to design the official T-shirt for #AWP19 in Portland. AWP selected several strong designs, and our AWP members can now vote on the final winner. The artist with the winning design will receive a free registration to #AWP19 and two VIP tickets to our gala featuring Cheryl Strayed—plus the satisfaction of seeing their stunning T-shirt design worn by thousands of writers in the city of Portland!
This contest is a fundraiser for AWP’s Writer to Writer Mentorship Program. All proceeds from the T-shirt sales before the conference will support the growth of this project as it enters its tenth season of helping new writers access the wisdom and experience of established and experienced writers.
