Although this year's Florida College English Association's Annual Conference on October 14-15, 2010 at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida will focus primarily on unity and diversity in literature, literacy, language, pedagogy and creative writing in Florida, we also welcome proposals for papers and panels on everything from Shakespeare and the Beats to grading in creative writing classes and decoding tenure assumptions. In addition to a wide range of papers and panels, we will also have a poetry reading by US Poet Laureate Billy Collins, a talk by award-winning environmentalist writer and filmmaker Bill Belleville, and master classes by critic Roger Rosenblatt and Random House Executive Editor in Chief Daniel Menaker.
The editor of 30-40 Years West of Here: Stories from the Sub-Rural West invites contributions for a collection of creative nonfiction essays that explores the implications of living in that often overlooked space/time specific to the West of the 60s, 70s, and early 80s. Partly the result of demographic patterns tied to economic booms and busts, these oddly anachronistic and often isolated neighborhoods sprung up in areas somewhat removed from the nearest towns and adjacent to and/or surrounded by woods, farms, foothills, rivers, and streams. Not part of the Old West or the New, this time/space presented those who lived, worked and played in those eras/areas of the sub-rural West with historically unique and significant experiences.

The International Lawman's Brut Society and the Early Middle English Society invite proposals for 20-minute papers on "The Law in Early Middle English Literature" for the next International Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo, May 2011. As the first element of Lawman's name is "Law," laws and legal proceedings are understandably an important part of the Brut and of other major texts of the early middle English corpus. Papers for this session may discuss various ways laws and legal proceedings inform these texts; the session seeks to promote discussions of the interconnections between the Brut and other texts of the period.
