Between March 28 and March 30, 2019, tens of thousands of writers, editors, and readers descended upon Portland, Ore., for the annual Association of Writers & Writing Programs conference.
There, editor Joyce Chen spoke on the importance of inclusivity in literary magazines and organizations, reppin’ The Seventh Wave alongside other fantastic literary journals, such as Split Lip Magazine, Barrelhouse, North American Review, Rigorous, and f(r)iction.
The conference served as not only an opportunity to connect with other literary organizations doing great work both on and offline, but also a means for us to chat with (and in some cases, meet for the very first time!) some of our contributors and mentors in person.
The Seventh Wave is proud to have taken part in AWP, and looks forward to continuing to forge relationships and deepen connections at next year’s conference, to be held in San Antonio, TX, from March 4 – 7, 2020. See y’all then!
