University of Mary Hardin-Baylor
Writers Festival, Feb 17-19
We invite poets and fiction writers to submit a selection of their work to be considered to be presented at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor’s Annual Writer’s Festival. Selections should not exceed fifteen minutes of reading, so no more than ten typed, double-spaced pages. Please include with your selection a short biography of the author, including where you have previously published your work or awards or honors you have received for your writing.
This year the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor’s Writer’s Festival will include panels on the relationship between faith and fiction or faith and poetry. We invite artists, scholars, teachers, or graduate students of creative writing to submit 300-500 word abstracts for paper presentations on the role of faith in the artist’s life or work, critiques of contemporary faith-inspired artists, or any other relevant topic.
Also, we are accepting proposals on pedagogical methods for teaching creative writing. What are practical assignments that have worked well to inspire students? What obstacles do 21st century writers face? How have you taught students to succeed in the face of new challenges?
Due Date: Please send your proposals by DECEMBER 1, 2010. Notification will be sent by December 15, 2010.
