CFP for NJCEA Annual Conference on March 21, 2020 at Seton Hall University
Joyce Carol Oates famously asked, "Where are you Going? Where have you Been?" As the English profession continues to evolve, our conference will explore these questions.
We are particularly interested in proposals for full traditional panels including at least four presenters, roundtables of six to eight speakers, workshops, individual papers, posters, and presentations that consider these questions for the profession, for the discipline, for our areas of specialization, and for the larger society. What is our role as scholars, researchers, teachers and community members during a time of worldwide transition?
Submissions for Young Scholars in Writing Volume 18 will be open from December 2019 through April 8, 2020.

Extended Deadline - Ghost Stories Call for Submissions
Tell me a story. A simple request made by children across the world every night and one we seek to fulfil even as adults. But… it is the stories that excite, that make our hearts beat faster, and the hairs on our necks stand on end that bewitch us most. It is these stories we want to hear. Spectral Visions Press (University of Sunderland) are now accepting submissions for a short story collection, Spectral Visions: Ghost Stories. Due to the fantastic response, we've extended the deadline in hopes of a bumper collection or even a separate poetry collection.
