Thanks to everyone who joined us at #AWP16! Looking back, last week was primarily all about our Frost Place winner (yay, Tiana!) and AWP. Having said that, there is still good news to be shared. It was wonderful to meet so many of you, many thanks for your support. We’ll see you next year at #AWP17 in Washington DC! –Noah Stetzer
