Beloved Writer-Parents who attend the annual AWP writing conference! Pen Parentis is heading to Seattle!!

First off – please please please stop by our table T616 !

We will have book signings (contact us to get on the list–all writers who have kids are welcome to take a one-hour slot first-come first-gotten, until they are gone!)

2. Our free publication “Parents Guide to AWP23” contains helpful tips about surviving the conference with your sanity intact should you have to bring your kid(s) along. Find lists of local kid-friendly restaurants & nearby things to do, as well as other items of interest to Parents.
