Each year The Windhover: A Journal of Christian Literature publishes a collection of fiction and poetry. In the spring authors read their own work, attend award-winning authors' presentations, and attend workshops on campus at the Writers' Festival, February 9-11, 2012. This year's keynotes and workshop leaders include Susan E. Isaacs, Daniel Taylor, Susanna Childress, Brett Foster, and Al Haley.

We invite poets and fiction writers to submit a selection of their work to be considered to be published by The Windhover Journal and presented at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor's Annual Writer's Festival.

Selections should not exceed 3-5 poems or 5-10 pages of prose,
double-spaced. 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 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.

Due Date: Please send your proposals by DECEMBER 1, 2011. Invitations to present will be sent by January 1, 2012 while acceptance letters for publication will be sent by March 1, 2012.
