Call for Papers:
Mary Hood and the Southern Canon: A Conference
Gainesville State College*
This conference is dedicated to the fiction of Mary Hood. While papers on all topics are welcome, we are interested in the ways that Hood’s fiction extends and redefines the concerns of Southern literature. Suggested topics:
• Hood and Her Contemporaries: Does Hood’s writing (compared or contrasted with her contemporaries) recast ongoing issues in Southern literature?
Proposals for single papers are welcomed. Panels and roundtable discussions are encouraged. Proposals should include the title of the presentation or panel, vita for each participant, and email addresses for all participants. The proposal should be sent as a double-spaced attachment in Rich Text Format (.rtf). Audiovisual equipment will be available for the symposium assuming adequate notification.
This is a one-day conference and will be divided between topic-specific sessions and a general session that will feature key note speaker Stephen Corey, Editor of The Georgia Review and a special appearance and reading by Mary Hood.
Please email all proposals to Samuel Prestridge at email@example.com by December 15th.
Creative work appropriate to the conference’s focus may be submitted. All submissions should include a cover letter and should be emailed no later than December 15, 2012. Send submissions to Gloria Bennett (firstname.lastname@example.org) via email as an attachment in MS Word format. Prizes will be awarded to winners in fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. For competition details, contact Gloria Bennett.
