full name / name of organization: 
Robinson Jeffers Association

As the Robinson Jeffers Association looks forward to encouraging and cultivating the next generation of Jeffers scholars, we are very excited to announce a special addition to this year's annual conference: a Friday afternoon workshop open to a small group of new and emerging scholars. This workshop will offer participants the opportunity to have in-depth conversations about their research in a roundtable-style format and receive written feedback on their work from other workshop participants as well as established Jeffers scholars. Papers may address any topic related to Jeffers.

The workshop will take place on the afternoon of Friday, February 21, 2015 at the Carmel Woman's Club in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.

Emerging scholars will be eligible for a need-based financial aid for travel expenses related to the conference. Those interested in participating in the workshop will need to submit the following materials electronically to robinsonjeffersassociation@gmail.com
by December 15, 2014: a current C.V.; an abstract of an article-length essay about or related to Jeffers and his work; an estimate of travel expenses (if financial aid is requested). Complete essays must be submitted for pre-circulation no later than January 10, 2015.
