The AWP, the acronym for the Association of Writers and Writing Programs, will offer a week-long conference for stellar local and national writers alike to share books and readings, alongside literary agents, publishers, and editors.

GIRLNESS AS A STANCE IN THE WORK OF FIVE CONTEMPORARY AUTHORS
Four poets and one fiction writer, each with a distinct stylistic approach, as they discuss how their work is taking “girlness” by storm, expanding it as a stance in bold ways. These writers, from a debut poet to seasoned authors and literary arts activists, push against the expected "girl/women/gurl/hood,” re-examining vulnerability, power, and the sources of power in breakthrough ways, using craft, subject matter, style, visual, and linguistic choices.
