ACCESSIBILITY, INCLUSIVITY, AND THE AWP CONFERENCE (under construction)
Since 2015, the Disabled & D/deaf Writers Caucus has been working to increase accessibility and inclusivity in literary circles. One of the most prominent opportunities for participation in the national literary community is the annual Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference. The materials shared here can be used and circulated freely. We hope that they raise awareness of the issues at hand, and encourage a welcoming spirit of event planning.

Are you interested in helping to create a “Hosting Venues” document when the AWP Conference comes to your town? If so, please let us know. We can provide templates and support.
Please note that the “DC Hosting Venues” document indexes both accessible AND inaccessible spaces, in the spirit of providing as much information to participants as possible. These notes are compiled in good faith, based on research, but ALWAYS contact the hosting venue to confirm accessibility, as circumstances may change anytime.
