Statement Regarding AWP
The following statement was from the Bennington Writing Seminars, regarding attendance at the Association of Writers and Writing Programs conference in San Antonio.
For more information about the College's response to COVID-19, please see the updates page.
After careful consideration, we at the Bennington Writing Seminars and the Bennington Review have decided to cancel our plans to attend AWP20 due to public health concerns about the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
We understand this may cause some inconvenience for those who have scheduled their travel and accommodations, but the health and safety of our staff, faculty, students and volunteers is our top priority.
