"I must decline your invitation owing to a subsequent engagement." — Oscar Wilde

"There is always something to do. There are hungry people to feed, naked people to clothe, sick people to comfort and make well. And while I don't expect you to save the world I do not think it's asking to much for you to love those with whom you sleep, share the happiness of those whom you call friend, engage those among you who are visionary and remove from your life those who offer you depression, despair and disrespect."
— Nikki Giovanni

AWP 2013 - Boston, March 6-9 - Poetry and the Academy Today CFP

updated: 
Wednesday, April 18, 2012 - 7:30pm
full name / name of organization: 
Rebecca van Laer

Seeking presentation proposals for the annual AWP conference in Boston, Massachusetts, March 6-9, 2013.

As first-book contests become increasingly influential in shaping contemporary poetry, this panel explores how these contests and other national poetry awards-- particularly the Yale Series of Younger Poets and the Poet Laureateship-- promote established poetic forms that occlude artists working in more experimental modes. Papers will revolve around the relationship between poets and the academy broadly conceived, in particular how the latter's promotion of an established aesthetic overlooks working-class and non-lyric poets, and how we might imagine a publishing industry more amenable to non-traditional forms.
