Prairie Schooner Returns From AWP

Prairie Schooner was delighted and proud to manage a booth at this year's Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) conference in Seattle. In attendance were editor-in-chief Kwame Dawes, managing editor Marianne Kunkel, web editor Paul Hanson-Clark, and a dedicated team of UNL graduate students who ran our booth, spoke with visitors, and passed out copies of Kwame's booklet, Memos to Poets. You also may have seen the African Poetry Book Fund's memorial reading for Kofi Awoonor, or APBF's panel, New Generation African Women Poets.

Our sincere thanks go out to everyone who came, helped, visited, said hello, attended the readings, or came to the reception. It was a pleasure to see so many faces, and to those who helped, we couldn't have done it without you!
