ADVANCED WRITING
Contemporary American Creative Nonfiction
The genre of creative nonfiction— exemplified both by engaging, intellectual essays and by narrative with attention to literary style—has received increasing scholarly and public attention. Moreover, such writing is taking new forms—on the page, as in the past, and on the web as well. This panel highlights and celebrates creative non-fiction composed for both page and screen. Papers on any aspect of writing, writing about, or teaching creative nonfiction are welcomed, and papers that connect to this year’s special focus are especially encouraged. By June 27, 2013, please send abstracts of 300 words or so and a brief bio to Diana Eidson at deidson@gsu.edu
