Rose O’Neill Literary House at AWP18

February 23, 2018
Very soon, the Rose O’Neill Literary House will be traveling to Tampa, Florida for the 51st annual AWP Conference from March 7-10. We will be bringing along four Washington College students to represent us in the Bookfair and to attend as many panels and readings as they can. Here’s where you can find us at the Conference.

Our students will be staffing Booth 717 in the Bookfair, where we’ll have copies of our Literary House Press books and broadsides, including our newest chapbook Scream (or never minding), by Lia Purpura. We’ll also be debuting a few brand-new publications just in time for the Conference.

Our fifth AWP Commemorative Broadside features a poem first published in the new anthology Reading Queer. “God and the G-Spot,” by Ellen Bass is now a piece of letterpress-printed art. The author has signed the entire limited edition and they will be available for purchase in the Bookfair at the special Conference-exclusive price of $15 each!
