Location and Meeting

The AWA has chosen to rotate host sites for purposes of convenience to participants and to maintain its identity as an independent organization.  In the past, we have met in academic institutions such as East Tennessee State, Virginia Tech, Western Carolina, Berea College, and others.  Any campus, academic or otherwise, could be suitable.  Lodging and meals on campus, meeting space, willing facilitators, and economy are essential.  If you know an institution or facility which might offer possibilities, and you would be willing to serve as facilitator, we welcome suggestions for future meeting sites.

Traditional aspects of our meeting include speakers, workshops, some scholarly papers, readings, and awards, as defined below.  This year Gardner-Webb University is generously hosting our organization, which will meet in conjunction with the . We encourage you to participate in these rich events, which focus on Cotton Mill culture and speak to our own organization’s interest in culture and literature in its diversity.
