Welcome to the Association of Writers and Writing Programs 2022 Conference,
from the LGBTQ Writers Caucus Leadership Team!
We’ve collected a few details in one spot you might find helpful. Due to our hybrid conference we’ve done our best to compile an assortment onsite and in-person resources that may be helpful or of interest to you as an LGBTQ Writer. Be sure to check out the full website for details on all AWP activities in case we’ve overlooked anything.
LGBTQ Writers Caucus
This will be a VIRTUAL event. The leadership team will open space and share a bit about their year and then we’ll shift into breakout rooms for a virtual ‘mixer’ of sorts. Please see the official event outline for more details. Closed caption will be available for those in need of access support- check out the accessibility link below for more information.
