announce the call for papers for their annual conference April 10-11,

Our speaker this year will be author extraordinaire Mary Ruefle, who has
published several books of poetry and prose as well as a comic book.
Inspired by her unique work A Little White Shadow, our conference is
entitled “Obliterature: The Art of Creative Destruction.” We are
looking for presentations, creative and scholarly, that deal with the
breaking down of culture and art, the imaginative implosions within the
written word, or simply those ideas that are not just out of the box but
crush it.
