AWP Bookfair, The First Haul


I love the AWP Bookfair. I always learn of presses I hadn't heard of before, I see editors who've published my work, and I encounter new writers and their work. I purchased half of these, while the others were gifts or on offer for free (the latter only applies to the magazine, Lake Effect). I've already read Sam Truitt's Heresway (Madhat, 2018) and Lesley Wheeler's Propagation (Dancing Girl, 2017) and am happy to recommend them both. Next I'll reacquaint myself with Salamander (which first published my work in 1998) and Seneca Review (1995), as both have reading periods at the moment....
