Last month, eight members of the Windmill team hopped on a flight to Tampa, Florida to attend the Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference. When we stepped onto the floor of the bookfair, we were immediately rendered speechless. The sheer number of college literary journals, small presses, and book swag was immediately overwhelming – but we didn’t let that stop us from picking up journals, tote bags, and new friends at nearly every table.
It was a whirlwind of fun, and the weekend was full of excitement opportunity – to promote Windmill, to attend panels, to explore new and unique aspects of the literary world.
The best part of the convention by far was the chance to interact with writers and publishers from all over the country, each and every one of them sharing our love of stories. Every person who approached our booth had their own story to tell – and we are getting ready to share some of them!
Our third issue of Windmill is currently in production, and we are so excited to share it with you all! Keep an eye out in the coming weeks for more updates. We can’t wait to share our latest publication with you.
