The Three Rules of IAWA

The Three Rules of IAWA


The Italian American Writers Association was founded in 1991 to promote Italian American writing. Its members include writers, readers, editors, publishers, agents, translators, teachers, scholars, and indeed all who are interested in the progress of Italian American writing . To promote the production, publication, reception, and study of Italian American writing, IAWA has formulated three rules.


  1. READ ONE ANOTHER.


We can’t expect other people to read the books of Italian American writers if we don’t read them ourselves.


  1. WRITE OR BE WRITTEN.


Italian Americans need to write their own realities, rather than waiting for others to do it for them.


  1. BUY OUR BOOKS.


If we want publishers to publish Italian American books, we need to be sure that we can show them a market for those books.
