The Big Ten Subscription Bundle Deal at AWP

If you’re going to Boston for the Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference, then golly, friends, do we have a deal for you. This year The Journal has teamed up with Prairie Schooner (out of the University of Nebraska, Lincoln) and The Iowa Review (out of the University of Iowa) to offer the Big Ten Subscription Bundle for the low, low price of $45! That’s right, you get one year of each magazine for less than you’ll pay for three cocktails at the hotel bar. That’s 11 total issues and a whopping $23 off the list price! I’ve sold kidneys for less! We’ll only be selling subscriptions for the bundle deal at The Journal’s table (i10) at the bookfair, so please stop by and sign up. We’ll be accepting payment in the form of cash, check, card, and endangered species.

Big Ten

Also, if you’re free Friday, March 8, at 10 in the PM, then come to suite 2309 in the Sheraton Boston for The Journal’s offsite reading in honor of our little magazine’s 40th Anniversary. We’re going to hear readings by former contributors including the famous and fabulous Lee Martin, Emilia Phillips, Antonio Elefano, Suzanne Richardson, Marcus Wicker, and Leslie Parry. Free food and drink will be provided as long as supplies last, or until our stores are devoured by a herd of starving, alcoholic zombie-writers.
