- The anthology The Best Short Stories of Philadelphia 2020, forthcoming from Toho Publishing, includes three members of the Working Writers Group, which runs our press: Ann de Forest, who is editing a book on walking that we'll formally announce soon; Debra Leigh Scott; and Sam Gridley, whose novel we published a few years ago.
- Ann's poem "Ammonites" has just appeared in Cleaver Magazine.
- In a recent blog post, Sam offers a somewhat whimsical explanation of why people should preorder his novella The Bourgeois Anarchist for use as a household weapon.

What is life worth?
The AWP Conference is going virtual this year, and the legion of folks who've been working on the digital platform have our deep appreciation. We've registered only for the Saturday Community Bookfair, March 6, and even for this minimal commitment the setup has been time-consuming. Nevertheless, we're happy to report that the arrangements below are more or less final, subject to digital glitches. We'll be sharing our virtual exhibit space with our friends at Hidden River Arts. Note that times are given for two time zones, Central and Eastern.
These events are open only to people registered for the conference. However, in honor of AWP, we're offering three of our recent books at a 20% discount if you order direct from our distributor. Follow the links below and at checkout, in the line that says Enter Promo Code, type AWP20.
Nathaniel Popkin, TO REACH THE SPRING
These discounts will be available to anyone from 3/3 through 3/9. Enjoy!
Update: Navigating the AWP site has been confusing for many. We will be in the Saturday Community Bookfair, which, as the name suggests, is on Saturday only. The link shown below will go live only on Saturday. You have to be registered for the conference for access. Be sure to have an adult beverage on hand for consolation if you get lost.
