We Need Only 170 More Votes!
It will take you only a moment to help AWP move into a more capable future. Please vote today on governance reform, or at least have yourself counted as present so we may achieve a quorum.

We will randomly select three voters to receive prizes. One will get a Kindle Fire, and the other two will get a Kindle Paperwhite each. To qualify, all you need to do is be a nonstudent member and vote any which way you like or state that you simply wish to be counted as present. Prizes will be awarded once we achieve a quorum—when 60% of our eligible members vote.
Connect on Twitter
Would you like other writers to be able to find you on social media? You can now add your Twitter username to your Directory of Members profile, which can be private, visible to AWP members, or visible to anyone reading the directory. If you are on an accepted conference event, your Twitter username will display along with your bio in the online conference schedule, allowing attendees to credit you properly when live-tweeting events.

Be sure to follow AWP's Twitter account for the latest updates and announcements. Use #AWP15 to discuss the upcoming conference & bookfair.
