Creative Writing Pedagogy
full name / name of organization:
Southwest Texas Popular Culture Association Annual Meeting
CFP: Creative Writing Pedagogy (12/01/11 SWTX PCA 2/8-11/12)
The Creative Writing Pedagogy Area of the SWTX PCA is dedicated to the teaching of creative writing in all its forms in various academic or community settings. This year’s conference theme particularly invites us to explore strategies of teaching our students to be innovative, experimental, and culturally aware “in the excess of every day” as Ruth Stone wrote. Share with us how you help your students find their creative voice among the ordinary and the exceptional aspects of the human condition. Beyond connections to the conference theme, we are interested in
–innovative strategies, approaches, and challenges in the classroom
Creative writers may, instead, want to share their own work at this wonderful conference. If so, please contact the Area Chair for Creative Writing (Poetry, Fiction), Jerry Bradley firstname.lastname@example.org. For Experimental Writing and Aesthetics, contact Hugh Tribbey email@example.com. Keep in mind that you may present in only one panel in one area.
Graduate students and future teachers of creative writing are particularly welcome to submit or register to attend the conference.
Please visit the SWTX PCA website for complete information about the organization, all areas of study, conference information, exhibitors, affiliated organizations, and graduate student awards (which are many and varied).
Please share this CFP with friends and colleagues engaged in all aspects of the teaching of creative writing.
