Annual Writers' Festival, February 17-19 2010

full name / name of organization: 
University of Mary Hardin-Baylor

This year the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor's Writer's Festival will include panels on the relationship between faith and fiction or faith and poetry. We invite artists, scholars, teachers, or graduate students of creative writing to submit 300-500 word abstracts for paper presentations on the role of faith in the artist's life or work, critiques of contemporary faith-inspired artists, or any other relevant topic. Also, we are accepting proposals on pedagogical methods for teaching creative writing. What are practical assignments that have worked well to inspire students? What obstacles do 21st century writers face? How have you taught students to succeed in the face of new challenges? Or other relevant topics.
