Thanks to everybody who stopped by our book fair table, or made it to one of the readings and panels in which our people participated. AWP was a lot of fun this year. We’re grateful to have the opportunity to meet and reconnect with so many great writers and/or people. Plus, we sold out of journals, which isn’t too shabby.

The final dispatch comes from Senior Fiction Reader Wendy Oleson. Here’s what Wendy has to say about Saturday’s session:

“It was fun to sell out of current and back PS issues at the table today. In terms of panels, I heard from PS poetry reader Sarah Chavez that Hybrid Bodies: Poets Negotiating the Fractal Geographies of Trauma and Identity knocked it out of the park–wish I would have caught that. I did, however, pick up some startlingly simple advice from the fantastically talented YA/MG authors Coe Booth and Shadra Strickland at Writing About Social Issues in Children’s & Young Adult Books: Write to tell stories, not to argue issues.”

See you in Boston next year!
