AWP conference

AWP conference: This is the annual conference and bookfair of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs.  It’s not a hiring conference like MLA, but it’s similar in that it’s about exchanging ideas, networking, and socializing.  In recent years, it’s brought me to Vancouver, Austin, Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, and Washington, D.C.  We go back to Chicago next year, and Boston the year after.

It’s fun, anxiety-producing, exhausting, and often quite emotionally intense.  And that’s just the travel there.
