UNC Press #AWP20 Promotion

After much thought and conversation, UNC Press has reached the difficult decision to not attend the Association of Writers and Writing Programs 2020 Conference. We’ll miss seeing all of you at the booth and talking books, but we’re looking forward to next year.

In the meantime, here’s a list of our newest books for you. Feel free to browse this list (and any other books on our site) and use the promo code 01DAH40, and you’ll get a 40 percent discount, and if your order totals $75, the (domestic U.S.) shipping is FREE!

Here’s a small sampling of what’s new. Click on each book to learn more.
