2008 TOPIC:
Fame/Infamy in Short Story Writing: “What makes you so special?”
 
DESCRIPTION : Not limited to just the story, possibilities may include author, situation/inspiration,
or culture. In other words, what makes a story famous? Is it merely the story itself, or does the
author have anything to do with it? Is the story culturally driven or is it just an imaginative story;
what does it have that makes it appealing to the reader? What makes it so special, so great? What
makes it not so great? What of the stories from famous authors that are left behind? This will be the
Short Story Panel of this year's M/MLA: the Good and the Bad. Please interpret as you will.

Deadline for abstract submissions is April 15, 2008
