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

The AWP Conference & Bookfair is the annual destination for writers, teachers, students, editors, and publishers of contemporary creative writing. It includes thousands of attendees, hundreds of events and bookfair exhibitors, and four days of essential literary conversation and celebration. The AWP Conference & Bookfair has always been a place of connection, reunion, and joy, and we are excited to see the writing community come together again in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2022.

In light of the tremendous success of the virtual 2021 AWP Conference & Bookfair, AWP will incorporate a virtual component to #AWP22. In addition to offering an in-person event schedule in Philadelphia from March 23-26, 2022, we will live-stream several in-person events and offer a selection of prerecorded virtual events.

A virtual-only registration will be available for #AWP22 at a reduced registration rate and will include the prerecorded virtual events and live-streamed events. The in-person registration will include all in-person and virtual programming.
