Orion at AWP

Chip, Jennifer, and Hannah were in Chicago for the annual conference of the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP), February 11-14. AWP conference- attended by 5800 people this year — is an opportunity for university writing programs, literary publishers and organizations, and writers across the country to network, present panels and readings, and browse a massive Bookfair. This year, Orion convened a panel, moderated by Jennifer, called “Award-winning Writing at the Intersection of Nature and Culture.” Panelists John Price, Debra Marquart, and David Gessner read and discussed their award-winning Orion essays.
