Mayapple Press is a small literary press founded in 1978 by poet and editor Judith Kerman. We celebrate literature that is both challenging and accessible: poetry that transcends the categories of "mainstream" and "avant-garde"; women's writing; the Great Lakes/Northeastern culture; the recent immigrant experience; poetry in translation; science fiction poetry.

Mayapple Press at AWP 2013

AWP

March brings one of the highlights of the American literary year, the annual AWP Book Fair. Each year, AWP holds its Annual Conference & Bookfair in a different city to celebrate the authors, teachers, writing programs, literary centers, and independent publishers of that region. The conference typically features 550 readings, lectures, panel discussions, and forums, as well as hundreds of book signings, receptions, dances, and informal gatherings. This year the event will be held at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, March 6 – 9.

Mayapple Press will have a booth at the fair and several of our authors will stop by to meet readers and to sign copies of their books. We’ll have staff at the table all through the convention and we’d love to see you. Our table is Hall A on the Plaza Level, Table #E3.
