2020 AWP Conference
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm on Saturday, March 7, 2020 at Henry B. González Convention Center

The Associated Writers and Writing Programs’ Annual Conference will include a panel presentation, “New Engagements with Forgotten Writers,” featuring Kim with Olga García Echeverría, Julie R. Enszer, and Dan Vera. Fees charged; registration required.

“Contemporary re-interpretations and appreciations of older mentor poets play a crucial role in keeping the legacy of those writers alive and contextualizing them for a new generation of readers and writers. Four poet-editors explore their secret muses (Gloria Anzaldúa, Lynn Lonidier, tatiana de la tierra, and Georgia Douglas Johnson) and why the work of these obscure writers inspires their own work creatively and editorially.”
