AWP Conference Details

AWP is the leading conference in our discipline, and it’s a great place for writers to meet agents, editors, publishers, and other writers from across the nation.

Every year SCAD Writing students, alumni, and professors attend (and often host) panels, parties, and the¬†book fair. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about writing and writing careers.

Students are responsible for their own travel, accommodations, and (discounted student) registration fees. The departmental funds will help pay for some of these expenses. You can further defray costs by sharing hotel rooms or staying with friends in Los Angeles.

Please see AWP for details.

Once funds are awarded, your professors will help you plan and navigate your AWP experience.
