Once a year the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) hosts the AWP Conference & Bookfair. This years conference took place March 27 – March 30 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. With more than 12,000 attendees, 2,000 presenters, and 550 readings, panels, and craft lectures, the AWP Conference & Bookfair boasts that it is the largest literary conference in North America. As a student of Augsburg University, I was proud to represent Howling Bird Press at the conference. I also enjoyed Portland for its abundance of recreation and scenic beauty. Below are some photographs from my trip.
