The College English Association, a gathering of scholar-teachers in
English studies, welcomes proposals for proposals for presentations on
Creative Writing (Poetry and Ficiton)for our 40th annual conference,
celebrating the organization’s 70th anniversary.
Creative Writing (Poetry and Fiction) sessions. Participants will read
their own creative works: a selection of poems, a short story, or a
chapter from a novel. Each presenter will have about 15-20 minutes to
read. The selections can relate to the conference theme but it is not

General Conference Theme: Design

In addition, CEA welcomes proposals for presentations on the general
conference theme, Design. We live in a world atomized into text messages
and jump cuts, socially constructed snippets on networking sites,
fragmented blogs and news bites, ones and zeroes. In such a context, is
there still a role for conscious design - of literature, of art, of
rhetoric, of learning? After the death of the author, who designs the
texts we love to see, read, and study? Or do we make our own
designations, sketching out the plot, shading in the design, creating
meaning as we find it?

General Call for Papers

CEA also welcomes proposals for presentations in any of the areas English
departments typically encompass, including literature, creative writing,
composition, technical communication, linguistics, and film. We also
welcome papers on areas that influence our work as academics, including
student demographics, student/instructor accountability and assessment,
student advising, academic leadership in departments and programs, and
the place of the English department in the university.
