AWP ’12: Say Hello or Slam a Pie in Our Face

Ah, AWP. The annual conference where graduate creative writing students hobnob with writers by day and switch hotel bedrooms by night, where lit journal editors field questions about the status of submissions, and where nearly everyone is wearing hipster-esque glasses.

We’re in the bookfair exhibitor’s hall at TABLE C-16. Meet our publisher, Dan Cafaro, and our publicist, Lacey N. Dunham, who will gladly shake your hand so long as you don’t have a cold. Atticus authors will be available for your paparazzi proclivities and book signing urges, too.

On Friday, March 2,  join us from 9:30 – Midnight at Brando’s Speakeasy when we join forces with Patasola Press for a fiery reading and a little booze (cash bar only, but we’ll do shots with anyone!).

On the other hand, if you’d rather take our presence at AWP as an opportunity to slam a pie in our face, that works, too, especially if it’s homemade.
