The English Department at Suffolk County Community College on Long Island
will be holding its Second Annual Creative Writing Festival April 25th,
2009. The Festival brings together students, poets, novelists, short
story writers, dramatists, creative non-fiction writers, and creative
writing professors for an engaging day of workshops, panel discussions,
readings, and events. Some of last year's participants included Brock
Clarke, Judy Baumel, Josh Gidding, Victor LaValle, Lawrence Epstein, and
Julie Sheehan. This year, the Creative Writing Festival Committee seeks
proposals from interested writers, faculty, and graduate students of the
following nature:

1. Panel sessions--on any topic of interest to creative writing students
and instructors at the high school, college, and graduate level. Panel
proposals should include a list of panelists/presenters, and working paper

2. Writing workshops--getting students, writers, and instructors inspired
and writing with new, interesting, and successful one hour workshops. All
genres will be considered, but we're particularly interested in short
fiction, poetry, and the essay. If you have a "stand alone" workshop that
works particularly well, we are interested in hearing about it.

All panel and workshop proposals should fit within an hour and ten minute
timeframe: one hour for the session and ten minutes for Q and A.

We certainly encourage you to consider these guidelines as broadly and as
creatively as possible.

All proposals, as well as any questions or inquiries, should be directed
to the Creative Writing Festival Committee at no later
than March 1st, 2009. Please include a brief bio when responding.
