Minnesota Writing and English Conference

updated: 
Friday, December 2, 2016 - 10:06am
Minnesota Writing and English Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 28, 2017

   The annual Minnesota Writing and English Conference(MNWE) will be held at Southwest Minnesota State University, Marshall, Minnesota on March 31, 2017-April 1, 2017. The theme  of the conference is "Connecting Landscapes." Our age of globalization and  virtual communities can obscure the reality that we are all literally grounded in our landscapes, our locales and institutional sites. MnWE's theme, Connecting Landcapes, invites us to consider the most fruitful ways of connecting geographical and metaphorical landscapes. As English educators, we speak of discovering "where we stand" on issues, of being "moved" by words and images, and of using languagae to change others' positions and points of view and create movement.
