The AWP Conference & Bookfair is the annual destination for writers, teachers, students, editors, and publishers of contemporary creative writing. It includes thousands of attendees, hundreds of events and bookfair exhibitors, and four days of essential literary conversation and celebration. The AWP Conference & Bookfair has always been a place of connection, reunion, and joy, and we are excited to see the writing community come together again in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2022.
Below are the details of the panelists
Rachel Bowen Pittman:
Kresge Fellowship, and the United Nations Human Rights Award for Freedom recipient ;
Poet, writer, and the director of the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa,
Pushcart Nominated Award-Winning Poet, Editor, and the Associate Editor of Life and Legends Megha Sood
FOCUS: The panel will focus on how the members of the creative community can activate their voices and empower themselves to impact global issues; how they can use the art of storytelling to share understandings of the global issues and engage in Creative Activism to bridge the divide between the nations and communities.
The event (presented by Life and Legends) we have opted to be held virtually, due to the availability of the panelists during the conference taking place from March 23–26, 2022 in Philadelphia, PA.
Congrats to all panelists!
