Where is the place for the woman writer within AWP and within the greater literary community? The women’s caucus discusses this as well as the continuing inequities in creative writing publication and literature. In addition, the panel will explore cultural obstacles in the form of active oppression, stereotypes, lack of access to literary power structures, historical marginalization of women’s writing, issues and perspectives, and the diverse voices of women. Networking opportunities.
