A small group of our staff members were given the opportunity to showcase the 2016 issue of Brainchild at the 2016 AWP conference in Los Angeles! 

The Association of Writers and Writing Programs hosts an annual conference during which hundreds of publications, presses and schools gather to promote new books and other products relating to literature. Outside of the bookfair, there are also countless panels, readings and workshops designed to facilitate learning, showcase new works and promote celebration of the craft. The conference took place over three days and saw saw traffic from over 15,000 people. 

It was a joy getting acquainted with the various publications and meeting so many interesting writers. When not tending to our table, our staff enjoyed hearing readings from acclaimed authors, purchasing new books, and exploring some of the other attractions LA has to offer.

We were thrilled to be able to expose so many readers to the wonderful works of literature and art that we have published in Brainchild over the last few years. The magazine was met with overwhelmingly positive reception, from the design to its content. We even managed to distribute the remaining stock of the 2015 issue! We're excited about the possibility of returning to AWP in the coming years.
