Coming to Portland, OR from March 27 – 30, 2019 for the Association for Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) conference to enjoy North America’s largest literary conference? For the fifth year in a row, ALTA is excited to present Bookfair Bingo, your chance to win a bundle of books in translation at AWP19!
Participants who get bingo by visiting the booths of participating presses will be entered each day of the conference to win a bundle of books generously donated by each of those presses. Stop by the ALTA booth (3056) at the bookfair to get your card and instructions to meet up with presses like Open Letter, Two Lines, Archipelago, Red Hen, and many more. And if you fill out a special bonus row featuring fabulous translation journals and organizations, you’ll get entered to win a subscription!
Don’t be shy: Stop by booth 3056 to say hello to ALTA staff, and tag us @littranslate on Twitter and Instagram!
Plus, we have a list of the translation-related events you’ll find there, including ALTA-sponsored events. Come on out and help us keep Portland weird at North America’s largest literary conference!
As part of AWP and ALTA’s literary partnership, ALTA is invited to submit 5 translation-related session proposals to the AWP conference.
