AWP 2017 in Washington D.C.

Another year has swooped around, and AWP looms on the horizon like a mountain of book fair swag dusted with the heavy snow of networking anxiety. If anyone has discovered how to be in two (or three or four) places at once, please tell us. We undoubtedly contain multitudes, but unfortunately can’t send them to different places at one time.

Below, find our 2017 AWP panel picks.
