Hi everybody! I just wanted to connect with anyone who will be at AWP next week in Chicago. (For those of you who don't know, AWP stands for Associated Writers' Programs, and every year the meeting features lots of terrific programming dedicated to writers and writing.) She Writes will be co-hosting a reception on Saturday, March 3rd at the Women-Made Gal..., an ALL She Writers (whether you are attending AWP or not) are invited. I'd also like to put together a calendar of She Writers panels at AWP so we can all have a quick and easy reference to help us support each other!
If you are on a panel at AWP, please paste the information in the comments below.
My panel will be 4:30PM to 5:45PM on Friday the 2nd (they love to put the ladies last):
The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House: Organizations Supporting Women in the Literary Arts
(Cate Marvin, Julie Kuzneski Wrinn, Kate Gale, Kamy Wicoff, Amy Hoffman)
Boulevard Room A,B,C, Hilton Chicago, 2nd Floor
Female and male authors alike are encouraged to join us for a conversation between founders and directors representing a variety of women’s literary organizations: VIDA: Women in Literary Arts, A Room of Her Own, She Writes, the Kentucky Womens Writers Conference, and the Women’s Review of Books. Presenters will discuss their respective and shared missions to foster the production of women’s writing and challenge its critical reception in our current literary culture.
The reception, co-hosted by She Writes along with the organizations listed above for the panel discussion, will be Saturday March 3rd. For details click here. I'd love to see She Writers there!
