Taking up the Quill: Queer Representation through Writing, Awards, and Publication–at the AWP Conference

March 9 @ 1:30 pm - 2:45 pm
Room 12, Tampa Convention Center, First Floor Florida + Google Map

Hear Quill’s editor, judges, and award winners read their powerful works and discuss the need for representation through publication.
