Students and Part-Time Faculty,
If you are thinking about going to AWP and wondering how you can save a few bucks, here it is: you can volunteer four hours (which usually is spent working at the help desk or checking people in, I think) and get your registration fee waived. www.awpwriter.org/awp_conference/registration_volunteer
If you are a student, you also can apply for travel funds from the Student Government Association at WestConn. Contact Dennis Lesko in the Dean of Students office for info. Or ask Melissa Gordon–she looked into it recently.
