Blue Skirt Productions senior editors Gayle Towell and Jessica Standifird stepped off the plane earlier today and are now at the Minneapolis Convention Center setting up for the Association or Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) Book Fair. The annual AWP conference is the largest literary conference in North America with over 12,000 attendees.
If you’re wandering the aisles of the AWP book fair in the next few days, come stop by table 242 and say hello! Tell us how the conference is going. Tell us what you’re working on. We’d love to hear from you!
We will have our books for sale, as well as some freebies including a special edition magazine, buttons, stickers, and coloring sheets!
Learn more about Blue Skirt! Ask questions! Seek advice! We love helping and supporting writers in any way we can.
We’re also running a Microfiction contest during the conference. Come by and get a sticky note, fill it with prose and stick it on our table! The best ones will be featured in a special AWP edition of Microfiction Monday Magazine on April 13th.
Come get your picture taken behind our Blue Skirt sign or wearing your own blue skirt and become part of the Blue Skirt Brigade!
