WRITING, LITERATURE, AND CRITICISM
Valdosta State University

Bailey Science Center
The complexities of literature and language studies can fragment graduate students to the degree that they lose sight of the commonalities among the components of their discipline. This conference seeks to reconnect us to the common allure of language, literature, and the contingent sub-disciplines that likely drew us to this multi-faceted field. We encourage submissions, especially from graduate students, on topics related to the conference theme. Some selected categories include:
Pedagogy in Creative Writing, Literature, and Rhetoric and Composition
