Project-Driven Publicity for Publishers and Writers

Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) Conference (Seattle, WA)
February 27, 9:00-10:15 a.m.

In the face of declining budgets and attention spans, a well-timed project can be a low-cost solution to boost attention for publications and writers. Found Poetry Review Editor-in-Chief Jenni B. Baker and Senior Poetry Editor Beth Ayer will discuss two successful National Poetry Month projects: the 2012 Kickstarter-funded  Found Poetry Project and 2013’s Pulitzer Remix, an initiative that united 85 poets to produce 2,500+ poems in a single month. Pulitzer Remix project participants E. Kristin Anderson and Jerome Joseph Gentes will detail the initiative’s impact on their morale, practice, and exposure to new and supportive readers.

If you’re going to AWP, join us for the session and be sure introduce yourself afterwards!
