CALL FOR PAPERS: Annual Writers' Festival
University of Mary Hardin-Baylor
Windhover Writers' Festival
Contact: Dr. Jessica Hooten Wilson,

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 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 November 15, 2012. Notification will be sent by December 1, 2012.
