AWP Conference Panel: Topic TBD

I would like to put together an Association of Writers and Writing Programs panel. I am unsure about the topic. The first panel I am putting together this year is for the 10th anniversary of my Anaphora Literary Press, a reading for some of the writers. I would like to put together a second panel with folks that I am not affiliated with, so anybody reading this post. The panel can be a reading, or a discussion on the profession, or a discussion on the writing craft. Maybe a panel of independent publishers to discuss the problems we face in this field. Maybe a panel of academics (I previously taught college English for over 4 years) to talk about teaching creative/writing.

Jill Carroll, writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education, argues that all instructors use a “teaching persona,” even those who unconsciously adopt what she calls a “default” persona. “If it [the default persona] works for you, consider yourself lucky,” she writes, “but if it doesn’t, the results can be messy.” This panel intends to address our teaching personae, and asks that participants consider the following questions (or any other questions that seem relevant to the issue at hand):

-Do you purposefully craft a persona for yourself, and if so, how have you gone about it?

-If at multiple universities, do you sample different approaches or personas?

-Who or what are your influences?

Career Construction Theory and Life Writing - Special Edition of 'Life Writing'

Over the last twenty years, a new form of career counselling practice has emerged, one that Mark Savickas (Career Counselling, 2011) refers to as career construction theory. Where earlier forms of vocational guidance utilised aptitude tests, statistical profiling and other forms of quantitative analysis, career construction takes a far more qualitative approach to employment counselling. By encouraging clients to see their careers as stories of which they are both the metaphorical authors and the main protagonists, career construction counsellors enable them to envisage the next chapter in those stories.
