The Association of Writers and Writing Programs AWP International Book Fair/Festival is an annual event that brings together writers, publishers, booksellers, and literary enthusiasts from around the world.

It is organized by the Association of Writers and Writing Programs, a non-profit organization that serves as a resource and advocacy center for creative writing programs, writers, and teachers.

The Association of Writers & Writing Programs promotes literary excellence, promotes writing as an integral component of a decent education, and assists modern writers, instructors, students, and readers.

As members, we assist hundreds of institutions and universities, as well as dozens of writers’ conferences and centres and thousands of individual writers.

In 1967, fifteen writers from thirteen creative writing departments founded the AWP as a non-profit organisation. The goal of the new organisation was to assist the expanding presence of literary writers in higher education.

Departments of English were primarily conservatories of great literature from the past at the time, and experts passionately opposed the introduction of creative writing programmes.

The AWP was founded to combat this opposition, lobby for new programmes, and give publishing opportunities for emerging writers.

The new organisation, formerly known as the Associated Writing Programs, welcomed both institutional and individual members. Because institutions are nothing without people to fill them,

AWP’s dual membership aided its organisational vitality.

Its combined membership of famous universities and accomplished authors persuaded academe that literary study should be both prospective and retrospective—that it should involve both the act of creation and the job of conservation.
