SAMLA's 2013 conference theme, "Cultures, Contexts, Images, and Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds," speaks deeply to the mission of creative nonfiction. The creative nonfiction panel is seeking submissions that are rich in imagery that invite the reader into the home of story through windows opened by the human experience – the windows that allow us to travel through and between genres, print, and various media that "make meaning" in creative nonfiction. Possible submissions could address culture, context, images, texts, and networked worlds.

Please email narratives, lyric essays, travel writing, genre-breaking, hybrid or multi-media papers as a DOC or RTF attachment to by June 1, 2013. CNF submissions should be 1500 words maximum using standard MLA format.

If you have questions, email Megan Oteri at or Susana Aguilar-Marcelo at

The conference is November 8 - 10, 2013 at the Marriott Atlanta Buckhead Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. For conference details refer to the conference website:
