Broke? Tired of Joyce Carol Oates? Go to the Fake AWP!


Breaking news from the world of AWP and everything associated with it:

“To provide a haven for those either too broke, too busy, or too disillusioned (with the fact that really it ought to be AWWP, jeez) to attend the massive four-day conference in Washington, D.C., an assortment of Brooklyn writers and editors are taking over Brooklyn Winery from 8pm to 10pm on Friday, February 4th. Even as AWP tackles some of the most pressing issues facing authors, publishers, and academics, Fake AWP will be addressing brunch, snark, literary crushes, and whatever it is Jim Behrle thinks about all day.”

Readers include Tobias Carroll and Jason Diamond among other upstanding Brooklynites.

Bonus: a cautionary lecture about the dangers of brunch by Caitlin MacRae.
