Deb: Live blogging the AWP Conference

Right about now, many of you are either en route or getting settled and psyched for finding your place among the 10,000 or so writers who’ll be attending the 2014 Association of Writers and Writing Programs Conference.

This year’s AWP Conference is in Seattle, a city that enjoys a symbiotic relationship with Alaska that dates back to gold rush days. (One of my favorite remnants of that relationship: Alaska residents are exempt from Washington’s state sales tax—just show your ID before your purchase is rung up.) You could nearly fill your schedule with panels that feature Alaska’s writers; for more on that, check out Linda’s post from last week.

Over the next few days, Lynn DeFilippo, our February featured author, will be live-blogging the conference If you couldn’t make this year’s fun, or if you’re there but want to compare virtual notes, be sure to check in with her posts. And if you missed it last week, you’ll want to also check out her post with tips for writers attending a conference.

I'm so bummed not to be going this year, but I'm delighted you're going to have live blogging.
So much Alaska stuff this year--have a wonderful time, everyone!
