#07 | AWP 2018: Tampa & The Literary Progressive Hellscape
In case you hadn't heard, AWP's annual writing conference was held last week (March 8-10) and it was... pretty much what I've come to expect. AWP stands for "Association of Writers & Writing Programs." The AWP conference is the biggest small/indie press conference in North America. Consider it the ANTI-Prom of popular fiction and what you'll find there is pretty much... a hivemind of progressivism with panels devoted to social justice and taking over classrooms.
In today's Bold Words, let me tell you about that experience... ADDED BONUS: This week's, "Why Didn't They Finish?" is AWP Edition!
