For those of you who have volunteered to blog, here’s the deal.  We welcome you all. If you want to “claim” a certain panels or event, send us an e-mail, and we will construct a webpage that lists your intention.  On the other hand, nothing says two people can’t blog the same panel.  Who knows? Maybe you will see it quite differently. Moreover, we are certainly open to blog entries on encounters in the lobby, odd doings at the Bookfair, or overheard conversations while in line at the Starbucks.  The AWP is filled with fascinating panels, but it is much more, and as long as you can make a plausible link to the world of nonfiction writing and publishing, we want to hear it.

Try to keep them short: 500 words maybe?  Shorter is fine.

Send questions here: brevitymag(at)  If posted to Facebook, we might very well miss them.

Thanks in advance, Dinty.
