Barbara Maloutas: 2012-13 Faculty Development Grant Report


AWP Conference & Bookfair, March 6-9, 2013

Faculty development grant to support expenses while attending the annual Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) Conference & Bookfair from March 6-9 in Boston.

Excerpt:

Over 11,000 writers, editors, and publishers turned out this year for the Association of Writers and Writing Programs' Conference, making it one of the biggest literary hootenannies for anyone with a passion for putting words on the page.

There are over 500 sessions devoted to topics of interest to both writers and teachers of writing, ranging from esoteric discussions of character development to the thorny business of publishing your first novel.

It took two of us an hour to figure out what panels were worth attending on a specific day. There were two documents to go back and forth between ... It was first thing on Thursday that we realized what was at issue when we didn’t plan ahead and get to a panel early. There were 100 people outside the small room for the panel – Modern Fairy Tales & Retellings. I ended up down the hall in Looking for Real-Life Humberts: The Unreliable Narrator in Creative Nonfiction. It turned out to be an excellent choice.
