ALTA has withdrawn its organizational presence from AWP20. Please see here for a full update.
For the sixth year in a row, ALTA is excited to present Bookfair Bingo, your chance to win a bundle of books in translation at the Association for Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) conference!
The rules are simple: Come by booth 1444 to get your Bingo card. Visit the booths of participating presses and have them stamp their space on your card. Get bingo. Return your card to ALTA at booth 1444. You’ll be entered to win a bundle of books generously donated by each of those presses. That’s it!
Drawings will happen at 4:30pm on Thursday, March 5 and Friday, March 6, and at 2:30pm on Saturday, March 7, so be sure to get your card in before then!
ALTA is excited to be working with 25 stellar presses whose books are the prizes for this event, and you can see the full list of participating presses here. We’ll be featuring the books on our social media in a special countdown to AWP, so stay tuned to ALTA’s social media channels to find out what you could win.
Don’t be shy: Stop by booth 1444 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 talk translation in San Antonio, TX at North America’s largest literary conference!
