With less than a month to go, this year's AWP conference is approaching fast. For those of you who don't know what AWP is, it is the largest academic writing conference in the United States with over 10,000 attendees last year alone. There will be feature presenters such as Seamus Heaney, author of Human Chain and winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, as well as panels and a large book fair for every type of reader and writer. Under The Gum Tree is excited to announce that our very own Janna Marlies Maron and Robin Martin will be there to talk to anyone willing to listen and answer any questions that may come up. This presents a great opportunity to discuss submission process and the type of work we are looking for. If you are attending, we would love for you to come find us. We can be found sharing a table with Sacramento Poetry Center, publishers of Tule Review, at table number N13 on the Plaza Level of exhibit hall B.
Can't wait to see you there.
