SLIDESHOW: Scenes from AWP 2013 in Boston


Last week, Melville House staffers Claire Kelley and Dustin Kurtz, and publishers Valerie Merians and Dennis Johnson, braved the storm that dumped a foot of snow on Boston to travel there for the annual Associated Writing Programs Conference. And it was definitely worth it! We saw future Melville House authors Rachel Cantor and Jeremy Bushnell, we fanned the flames of novella fever, publisher Dennis Johnson spoke on two panels about independent publishing, and we loved meeting so many Melville House maniacs — thank you so much for coming by our booth. Below are a few scenes from the conference for anyone who was there and in case you didn’t make it.

And it’s not too late!

If you’d like to sign up for our writing list, you can do so here.

And if you’d like a novella poster that we were giving away, you can still request one here.

Of course, if you still want an “I would prefer not to” t-shirt that we ran out of so quickly, you can order one here.

See you next year in Seattle!

Claire Kelley is a the former Director of Library and Academic Marketing.
