Uh Oh - AWP 2008 (We don't need no stinkin' badges!)
Um, will someone please explain the email I just got from AWP? I am more than a little worried. It seems I might have a table at AWP, but not be able to actually sit at it . . .
NYC CONFERENCE REGISTRATION SOLD OUT
We're sorry, but due to overwhelming interest in AWP's 2008 Conference & Bookfair, we will not be selling registration passes on-site in New York. No more passes will be sold. More than 7,000 individuals are registered for our 2008 Conference & Bookfair, making it our largest gathering ever. Security will monitor the Bookfair and Conference events, and only pre-registered individuals possessing a registration badge will be admitted into Conference events and the Bookfair. Thank you for your support.
So am I going to AWP or not? Are the students who are supposed to be manning the Laurel Review table going or not? We have flights and hotel rooms. But, um, not registration badges.
This might be a bit of a problem.
I suppose we can sit in the lobby and wave?
