I've just returned from AWP16, the Association of Writing and Writing Programs Conference and Book Fair, in Los Angeles. If you've never been, this is one of the largest writing conferences in the country, with over 11,000 attendees, 500+ panels and readings, and 800 vendors.

The annual AWP Conference is the place to connect with other writers, writing teachers, creative writing programs, editors, publishers, agents, and literary magazines. The uber-famous authors rub elbows with the undergrad creative writing students, and everyone is immersed in the culture of literature and reading.

To learn more about the happenings at AWP16, check out this great article from Publisher's Weekly.

Next year's AWP Conference will be Feb. 8-11, 2017 in Washington, D.C. Don't miss it!

This picture was taken at the AWP15 Book Fair in Minneapolis, MN. Alas, I was so busy this time I forgot to take a photo at the Book Fair in Los Angeles!
