What We Found at AWP

Every Wednesday we post about what we’re reading at the Lookout offices. The books and journals you find here are what inspire us. This week we’d like to highlight some of the publishers that caught our eye at AWP. Enjoy!

AWP Schwag

We just finished hand-making these wonderful little journals for AWP.

Get them at tables N5/N6 when you buy a Lookout book — Binocular Vision by Edith Pearlman, God Bless America by Steve Almond, or the not-yet-released poetry collection When All the World is Old by John Rybicki (April 10).
