Critical papers, criti-fictional presentations, fiction readings,
performance pieces (digital, sound, and otherwise), electronic and
multimedia projects, and cross genre work of all kinds. Pieces that
address linguistic transgressions, the limits of genre, or works that promote interdisciplinary explorations are particularly encouraged.

Proposals can be for individual readings, critical panels, creative
panels, and/or roundtable discussions.

Please send proposals by email in the following format:

*Title of Proposed Reading/Performance/Presentation
*Brief Description (no more than 500 words).
*Brief Bio (a few sentences) of all participants
*Tech needs (if any)

Submit all proposals to: andnow4@gmail.com

PROPOSAL DEADLINE: June 1, 2009

Please note: Each session will be approximately 75 minutes. Individual presentations/readings should therefore be limited to 15-20 minutes so that grouped sessions that make thematic sense can be arranged.
