AWP Conference Event with the 2009 Bread Loaf Waiters


The 2009 Bread Loaf Waiters will be at After-Words books on Friday, March 2, 2012 from 8-10 pm reading from their work

The Bread Loaf Writers' Conference is one of America's most valuable literary institutions.  For the past 87 years, the workshops, lectures, and classes, held in the shadow of the Green Mountains have given America proven models of literary instruction. Bread Loaf is not a retreat—not a place to work in solitude. Instead it provides a stimulating community of diverse voices in which to test our own assumptions regarding literature and seek advice about our progress as writers.

Ten poets and fiction writers from all over the country will be here and reading from their latest work.Dara Barnat, Greg Brown, Jennine Capó Crucet, Reese Okyong Kwon, Jane Lin, Peter Mountford, Roger Reeves, Giuseppe Taurino, Ross White, Alexi Zentner are Bread Loaf Waiters or “work study scholars” who received one of the most coveted scholarships to the Bread Loaf Conference. These promising writers earned their keep by serving three meals a day to the paying guests.
