Literary Agancy Cyprus
deadline for submissions:

How do we imagine Nicosia beyond barriers – either physical, social or mental? Can we imagine Nicosia beyond barriers? Can Nicosia – as a site that is at once shared, divided and contested – invite and inspire us to write it, to be creative because of and about it?

We invite contributions from writers of fiction and non-fiction, poets, playwrights and cross-genre writers writing in English for the forthcoming anthology Writing Nicosia… beyond barriers.

Teaching Travel Writing

 

The Society for the Study of American Travel Writing seeks abstracts for a session on “Teaching Travel Writing” for the American Literature Association annual conference in Boston, Massachusetts, May 25-28, 2017.

 

As a genre of Literary and Rhetorical study, Travel Writing generally occupies a marginal status in most curricula. The same might also be said of Travel Writing as a practice. Confronting this, we welcome papers on the specific challenges and rewards of travel-writing pedagogy, either as a study in itself or as a practice.

  

Proposals might consider the following questions:
