At the end of February, the annual Association of Writers and & Writing Programs (AWP) conference will be taking place in Seattle for the first time in years. One of the highlights of AWP is the extensive program of parties and readings that happen during every night of the conference. Just about every literary magazine that matters is hosting at least one reading in Seattle during that time, and most of them will be open to the public.

If you're putting on an AWP party, please let The Stranger know by e-mailing the date, time, location, and details to As with every reading event in town, the deadline for submitting your event is two weeks before the event, but we'd like to get a comprehensive guide to AWP up and running as soon as possible. Send us what you've got, so we can tell the whole city about it.
