So for the first year ever, Open Letter has a booth at AWP, the annual conference of the Associated Writing Programs. Our booth is J8, which, if you look at this rather daunting map, is against the wall in the Southeast Hall. Not exactly the center of all AWP foot traffic, so PLEASE come by. I promise to make it worth your while by providing a few moments of semi-coherent babble and by selling you any and all Open Letter titles for only $10/piece.
There are also a lot of interesting panels going on at the conference, including “Phoning It In: Publishing through an iPhone App,” which I’ll be on along with representatives from One Story, Kenyon Review, and Kaya Press, to talk about the iPhone app we never actually developed. So . . . yeah. Instead we’ll be talking about digital initiatives and readership. This is taking place at 10:30am on Thursday in the Lake Michigan room on the 8th floor of the Hilton, and again, I promise it will be fun.
