Top 5 Questions for Room at AWP16
For the first time ever, Room magazine attended AWP this past April in Los Angeles. We sat in the bustling book fair in the Convention Centre among hundreds of tables where we shared our upcoming calls for submissions, contest deadlines, and, of course, our journal.

We are getting so excited and inspired (and hungry) watching your submissions roll in for our upcoming Food issue! In the spirit of the food theme, we put together this collection of Roomies’ favourite cookbooks for writers.
