The South Atlantic MLA Creative Nonfiction Writers panel is seeking papers to consider for inclusion at the 2009 convention to be held November 6-9, 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference's theme this year is "Human Rights in the Humanities." Submitted papers should adhere to that theme and may range from 1000-4000 words. Those writers whose works are accepted must be (or become) a SAMLA member, must commit to attend the 2009 conference, and should be prepared to read the accepted work out loud to an audience.

Submissions should be made to Foster Dickson, panel chair. Please send the entire work, double-spaced, as well as a 100-150 word abstract of the work, either by e-mail to or by mail to 1247 Westmoreland Avenue, Montgomery, AL 36106. Please use legible (roman or sans serif) fonts. Be sure to include all appropriate contact information, e.g. school, home, alternate summer address, etc. All submissions must be received by May 1, 2009 in order to be considered.
