Cave Canem at AWP Tampa
Earlier this month, Cave Canem joined hundreds of literary institutions and thousands of writers in Tampa, Florida for the annual AWP conference. Cave Canem kicked off the week with its Annual Fellows Reading on March 7. Headlined by Florida-affiliated fellows Yolanda Franklin, Natalie Graham, and Breauna L. Roach, fellows shared their work in rapid-fire intervals. On March 9, Cave Canem hosted a reading and conversation with Tyehimba Jess and Shara McCallum. Moderated by Clint Smith, their conversation explored complex issues of identity.
Cave Canem’s booth in the convention center’s exhibition space never saw a dull moment. It became a first introduction for those new to or curious about Cave Canem, a place for fellows who have never met to begin new friendships, and for Cave Canem friends to reunite.
