AWP 2014 has come to a close. We saw Sherman Alexie and Tim Egan read on the main stage last night. This reading was a perfect way to end the conference. Now that we are bleary-eyed on all things literary it is time to go home. We won’t forget to tell everyone how great Seattle is and we hope that everyone else will do the same. Make sure to come and visit, if for no other reason than to get a cat and a bear in your cappuccinos. Travel safely and thank you Seattle! Video Poem: "Looking Out the Window... Continue reading

AWP is influencing the city of Seattle! Just a few blocks away from the Washington State Convention Center we noticed a poetry reading taking place in the dog park. We also noticed some great finds at the bookfair and learned that writer’s block can be cured with a little bit of chocolate, courtesy of Writers’ Workshoppe Imprint Books.

We definitely recommend these menu items: The Quinoa and arugala salad: mixed quinoa, arugula, roasted butternut squash, le... Continue reading

Try any of their sandwiches, but we can specifically vouch for the Tuscan Tuna... Continue reading

What is one to do after registration is complete for AWP? Stop for a snack of course. A short stroll later, we found ourselves at Belle Epicurian, a café and French patisserie. We recommend this cafe to grab breakfast pastries, desserts, sandwiches, salads & soups made from natural and organic ingredients (1206 4th Ave.). A strong cappuccino and almond croissant later and we were sugared up, caffeinated, and ready for AWP’s Opening Night Awards Celebration where the winners of the George Garrett Award for Outstanding Community Service in Literature and the Small Press Publisher Award were announced. Congratulations to Maria... Continue reading
