Like podcasts? Then you’ll be glad to read this announcement from the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP):
“Welcome to the AWP Podcast Series. These podcast episodes feature recordings from selected events at the AWP Annual Conference. We are pleased to present readings and discussions from Rae Armantrout, Mary Jo Bang, Charles Baxter, Toi Derricotte, Stuart Dybek, Cornelius Eady, Nick Flynn, Carolyn Forche, William Gass, Linda Gregerson, Donald Hall, Edward Hirsch, August Kleinzahler, Philip Lopate, Heather McHugh, Alice McDermott, Honor Moore, Joyce Carol Oates, Francine Prose, Marilynne Robinson, Patricia Smith, Gerald Stern, Mark Strand, C.K. Williams, C.D. Wright, and many other wonderful writers!”
New podcasts are being added each Wednesday. But note this one catch:
Podcast Episodes from the 2007 conference will remain open to the public for listening. Episodes from the 2008 conference onward are available to AWP Members only through AWP eLink, an online service portal providing our members with the most up to date AWP resources for writers, teachers, and writing programs. Please check back for the most recently published episodes and below for a complete list of recordings currently available through eLink.
So, although most of the content is limited to AWP members, everyone can enjoy some of it for free. Perhaps you’ll try out one of the offerings this weekend.
However you spend your weekend, have a good one, and we’ll see you back here on Monday.
