I'm in to help in any way.  What would we offer the mostly authors,
students and profs who attend these huge gatherings that would draw
significant attention?  Having the right famous author or two on the panel
would be great.  Something like "Connecting Local Writers and Readers" or
"Celebrating the Young Writer"?

Thanks, Josephine

> *What kinds of proposals is AWP looking for?*
> The highest-ranked proposals often involve panelists with diverse
> backgrounds, aesthetics, specialties, affiliations, and who are of
> different races or in different stages of their careers. The subcommittee
> understands that such events will enable the best discussions; an event
> that demonstrates interscholastic play, inter-generational collaboration,
> and diversity will appeal to a broad audience and provide lively analysis
> of an issue.
>
> If you feel that a particular subject is underrepresented, please submit a
> proposal this year. Chances are others feel the same way! The subcommittee
> prefers proposals that reach beyond one campus or group to a greater
> diversity of people who share your concerns.
>
> Successful proposals also observe the guidelines and modules by which the
> Los Angeles Subcommittee receives and reviews proposals. Before you prepare
> your proposal, please read the Open Letter
