AWP Conference 2020: San Antonio

Happy International Women’s Day! We attended the AWP Conference and Bookfair March 5-7, celebrating with book signings by three of our poets, and with an off-site reading at the Candlelight Coffeehouse & Wine Bar. Due to precautions just ramping up for coronavirus, the conference attendance was greatly diminished. This made for an intimate gathering, with more time for conversations and connections. Here are some San Antonio poet pix:

Perugia poets Megan Peak (Girldom), Abby E. Murray (Hail and Farewell), Corrie Williamson (Sweet Husk) & Editor/Director Rebecca Olander at our reading at Candlelight.
