The AWP Conference & Bookfair is an essential annual destination for writers, teachers, students, editors, and publishers.

AWP is excited to announce that #AWP21 will be fully virtual this March. The AWP Conference & Bookfair has always been a place of connection, reunion, and celebration, and we hope to offer the same experience in a new way this year.

We are currently working with Kansas City, MO to move the in-person conference to a future year and we will announce more information in the coming weeks. We look forward to rescheduling with Kansas City and celebrating the region and Kansas City’s literary community once it’s safe for us all to be together again.

The AWP Conference & Bookfair is an essential annual destination for writers, teachers, students, editors, and publishers. Each year thousands of attendees join our community for four days of insightful dialogue, networking, and unrivaled access to the organizations and opinion-makers that matter most in contemporary literature. The conference features thousands of presenters as well as hundreds of readings, panels, and craft lectures. The bookfair hosts hundreds of presses, journals, and literary organizations from around the world. AWP is now the largest literary conference in North America. Join us in 2021 to celebrate the best of what contemporary literature has to offer.
