AWP 2018 Shiny Family Schedule

As we look forward to our time in Tampa, we’ve been relishing in seeing the GS contribs & other members of our Shiny Family who are reading or speaking or hosting or just generally doing awesome things during this year’s AWP! We will be at table T-635 in the book fair, and we truly hope you have the opportunity to come say hello if you’ll be attending the conference

Here’s a list of some of these events, onsite and offsite, that you should consider trying to make it out to–each event we have listed here features members of the GS Shiny Fam–including our own event with the UL Lafayette Graduate Creative Writing Program and Yellow Flag Press.

Contributors from issues 1.1, 1.2, 2.2, 3.1, 3.2, 4.1, 5.1, 5.2, 6.1, 6.2, 7.1, 7.2, 8.1, 8.2, & our most recent issue, 9.1, as well as staff and contest judges, past & present are included, and we are proud and honored to have such a long history of publishing active voices in the literary world.
