Panel description:

Please submit a brief bio in the abstract spot, and a longer bio and a selection from the fiction/nonfiction piece you'd like to read in the proposal spot. Then, please email me your full prose piece (>6,000 words, please). I welcome submissions by both established and emerging writers. Should you be chosen you will have approximately 8-15 minutes to read your prose. Any prose submission is welcome, but flash fiction or brief prose that engages with the conference theme of "Acting, Roles, Stages" would be most welcome.

Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. We look forward to your submission.

Note: The PAMLA Conference, held over the November 9-11, 2018 weekend at lovely Western Washington University in idyllic Bellingham, Washington, is a broad conference for scholars of a wide variety of literary, cultural, or media topics. There are over 125 approved sessions you could consider proposing to. You may submit to more than one session (if you do so, please let the presiding officers know you are doing so) but may only deliver one paper at the conference itself.

Please do not submit proposals to more than two or three sessions, and do not submit the same proposal to multiple sessions.
