Creative Writing Education Today

A national nomadic symposium


Following the successful launch of the nomadic symposium at the University of South Florida (with host Dr. Dianne Donnelly) on October 5, “Creative Writing Education Today”, next appears at:

Illinois Wesleyan University

Bloomington, Illinois

Friday, February 1 2019

You are invited to propose a short paper (15 minutes) and to engage in discussions in this unique nomadic symposium. Papers can explore any topic in such areas of interest as:

- New ideas in Creative Writing Teaching and Learning

- Assessment

- National and global developments in Creative Writing Research

- Co- Curricular Opportunities

- The Future for Creative Writing / Creative Writing Studies

Sessions in each national location will be introduced and hosted by authors in the New Writing Viewpoints (MLM) book series and from New Writing: the International Journal for the Practice and Theory of Creative Writing (Taylor and Francis). The IWU host is Dr. Mike Theune. All participants will also be invited to participate in a national survey of creative writing education today.

Send proposals (150 words) to: proposal@creativewritingsymposium.com

Proposal Deadline: November 30 2018

Attendees who do not wish to present are also very welcome and can register by sending and email to attend@creativewritingsymposium.com or reserve a place via Doodle registration at: https://doodle.com/poll/dpk8w4knr36h83my

The nomadic symposium is free, but places in each location are limited. Early submission/registration at your local symposium is thus highly recommended.
