Abstract

AWP Conference & Bookfair is the largest national writing conference of North America where CSUSB is one of three CalState campuses fortunate enough to participate. Our national literary magazines Ghost Town and Badlands represent the diversity present in the writing and artistic community of Southern California. In addition, this year we released an MFA Anthology, Drought City, which further illustrates the diversity of voices, talent, and creative drive coming out of CSUSB on a national platform. By attending the AWP conference as a writer, an advocate, and an admirer of the arts and its reflection of the human condition, we are propelled into a stream of opportunities and connections through networking with literary magazines, journals, authors and organizations that constitute contemporary literature both nationally and internationally. Furthermore, we will exhibit how the exposure to these different literary mediums is both aesthetically and intellectually enriching to our growth as writers. We will capture a part of the AWP experience through the documentary form which will deliver our hands on experience as presenters and attendees and give insight into the benefits of the conference for all CSUSB students and alumni in attendance.
