The 81st Annual South Central Modern Language Association Conference will be held in New Orleans, LA, September 19 - 21. The conference is in-person. For the session Creative Writing Poetry, we invite submissions of poetry on any topic and in any form. Please send your submissions and a brief CV to Jack Love at firstname.lastname@example.org and Jennifer Peterson at Jennifer.email@example.com by February 20, 2024. We encourage sharing this CFP with other poets and look forward to a session of words seeking “to compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters, and conditions of man” (Amanda Gorman).
