Everything You Need To Know About LitReactor Being At AWP

Onsite registration begins today for the Association of Writers and Writers Programs conference!

Dennis Widmyer, our editor-in-chief, and Kirk Clawes, our technical lead, are already in Seattle, getting things set up at our booth (717, if you want to stop by).

Also joining us will be instructor and columnist Taylor Houston, class facilitator Emma Clark, and agent-in-residence Bree Ogden. And I'll be on the floor tomorrow, as long as the latest round of snow to hit New York City doesn't screw with my flight this evening. (Fingers crossed!)

We'll be talking about all the cool stuff LitReactor has to offer (magazine content, classes, workshop, etc.) And we don't want to just tell people about us—we want to talk to you. Our loyal readers and members. If you want to chat about the site—what you like, what could be done better—tell us. 

We've got some fun swag, like that very groovy temporary tattoo pictured above (photo stolen from Bree's Instagram). And a lot of our instructors are going to be floating around, so we'll be pulling them over to the booth to hang, for a few minutes at least. People like Suzy Vitello, Joshua Mohr, Nick Mamatas, Patrick Wensink, Lidia Yuknavitch, and Rose O'Keefe, just to name a few. (And I'm sure I forgot a bunch, because seriously, this event is packed with cool people.)

We have another special guest in the works, too. I'd tell you who it is, but there's this rule about not talking about it. Two rules, actually...

We're also co-hosting a party with Writer.ly and the Booked. Podcast tomorrow night. Here are the details. And here's an event page on Facebook where you can RSVP. You do not need to be registered at AWP to attend. (Does it make me a bad person that I want this party to be so off the hook that we get in trouble for it?)

We're keen to meet you, and hang out, and have a fun time. While there was a lot of sturm und drang about the conference being closed to the public on Saturday, that decision has been reversed.

Sound off in the comments if you're coming by, or if you have a question. Otherwise, see you shortly!
