Connect with Us

ALTA @ AWP Events: As part of our Literary Partnership with AWP, ALTA will sponsor events at the conference. Presenters on these events represent our organization and showcase what ALTA members are doing at the forefront of literary translation. Return to this page for the final list of ALTA-sponsored sessions, and a full list of translation-related events at AWP25.

ALTA @ AWP Bookfair: Find ALTA at our booth in the bookfair! Join us there to talk translation, snag some ALTA swag, and participate in Bookfair Bingo, your chance to win a bundle of recently published titles in translation. Just fill out your Bingo card by visiting participating publishers at their booths, and you’ll be entered into a raffle to win a number of books in translation. Visit us at our booth to learn more! 


Get Involved

Propose a program for ALTA @ AWP: Proposals for AWP25 were accepted through May 20, 2024. Chosen programs will be confirmed in August 2024. (If you proposed a translation-related event directly to AWP and it is accepted, we'll be glad to include it in our list of translation-related events at AWP25.)

Call for Volunteers at AWP25: ALTA's presence at the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP) conference and bookfair would not be possible without the hard work of our volunteers. Attendees who volunteer for 4 or more hours at the ALTA booth at AWP25 are eligible for free conference registration. Note: If you have already registered for AWP, we are unable to comp your registration as AWP doesn't allow for refunds. The call for AWP25 volunteers will open in fall 2024. Check back here, and watch our newsletter.

Member Books on Display at AWP25: ALTA will happily display recent books translated by ALTA members at our booth. There is a maximum of 2 titles per member. ALTA staff cannot transport books to AWP, so members must bring them in person to our booth. Books are for display only; ALTA cannot handle any sales at AWP. Books must be dropped off no later than 10:00am on the first day of the bookfair (Wednesday, March 26) and picked up no later than 4:00pm on the last day (Saturday, March 29). Unclaimed books will be donated. We look forward to showing off your work!

We are looking forward to seeing you at AWP25. Be sure to stop by and say hello to us!
